A woman in her 30s was shot Saturday morning in a remote area near Whitmore Village in Wahiawa.

She was taken to a hospital in critical condition, where she later died, Honolulu police said.

The Honolulu Police Department reported that the woman was on the phone with a friend who overheard the woman arguing with a male. The friend located the woman and called the Honolulu Emergency Services. She told police that while she was on the phone she heard a crash and then a gunshot.

The shooting happened just after 9 a.m. near Kaukonahua Road and Kameha­meha Highway.

Paramedics treated the woman at the scene before transporting her to a trauma facility.

Police were still looking for the shooter as of Saturday night.

The shooting happened on undeveloped land owned by the state Department of Agriculture.

Two vehicles were towed from the site, one of them a Jeep with a bullet hole in the driver’s side windshield. The bullet that caused the hole is believed to be the shot that hit the woman.
