Honolulu police are searching for two possible suspects in connection with an officer-involved shooting in Pearl City this morning.

The incident started in Waiau at about 6 a.m. where an officer attempted to stop a vehicle, police said.

Part of the investigation involves an unoccupied four-door, tan-colored sedan located on Kaonohi Street on the corner of the Macy’s side entrance of Pearlridge Center in Aiea. The vehicle had a shattered window on the driver’s side.

Honolulu police cordoned the area with yellow police tape and temporarily shut down the mauka-bound lanes of Kaonohi Street near the shopping mall as detectives investigated.

The investigation also prompted lockdowns at Pearl Ridge Elementary School, Our Savior Lutheran School and a preschool run by Kamaaina Kids at St. Timothy Episcopal Church as a precautionary measure.

The lockdowns were lifted by 9:30 a.m. and affected lanes on Kaonohi Street were reopened at 9:55 a.m.

Detectives are investigating the case as an attempted murder on a law enforcement officer.
