HONOLULU, HAWAI.- An armed man barricaded himself in a hotel room in a tourist complex in Honolulu and fired through the door, a policeman said.
No one was injured by the shooting Saturday night in The Kahala Hotel & Resort, the police captain of Honolulu, Brian Lynch. Police and hotel security personnel evacuated the area around the room and everyone was sheltered, the establishment said.
Photos and videos shared in local media showed about 100 people locked in the hotel’s party room. Other images from outside the compound showed a heavy police presence, including an assault team.
Police were waiting for the man to leave the room, Lynch said.
