Honolulu police are looking for a man involved in a shooting death at the Ala Wai Community Park at around 1:30 this morning.

Police said the killing followed an argument between two homeless men in the bleachers next to the ball field.

One of the men pulled out a handgun and shot the other man in the head, police said. The suspect then fled down Kapi'olani Boulevard toward Date Street. The victim was taken to The Queen's Medical Center where he was dead on arrival.

Police patrol units are still looking for the suspect and the investigation is continuing.
