A 58-year-old man was arrested Friday afternoon after police said he fired several rounds from a handgun following an argument in Haleiwa.
No one was injured in the 5:35 p.m. incident. The man remained in police custody Friday evening pending possible charges of terroristic threatening, reckless endangering, and burglary.
Police said the man got into an argument with a parking lot attendant in Haleiwa and pointed a gun at the worker before fleeing. A police officer later spotted the man standing along a street in the Sunset Beach area armed with a handgun, police said.
The man threatened the officer and fired the gun into the air, police said. He then ran into the garage of a home on Mamao Street and fired the gun into a door, police said.
When other officers arrived, the man laid down his gun and surrendered without further incident, said Maj. Janna Mizuo, Honolulu Police Department spokeswoman. No shots were fired at the man, Mizuo said.
