Advertiser Staff

A standoff in Pālolo Valley yesterday morning ended peacefully when police arrested a man who had barricaded himself in a house.

Police Capt. Letha De Caires said the man, 46, was being held on suspicion of three counts of first-degree terroristic threatening and two counts of abuse of a household member.

Police were called to the home on Waiōma'o Street about 3:30 a.m. after a family argument, De Caires said.

Three family members were outside the house, and the man was alone inside when officers arrived

HPD's specialized services team was sent to the house about 5 a.m. and a negotiator made contact with the man.

De Caires said the incident was resolved by 8:30 a.m. and the man was arrested without any shots being fired.
