HONOLULU (AP) — Two police officers were shot in Hawaii on Sunday and the gunman is being sought, authorities said.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that officers had responded to an assault call near the base of Diamond Head when they encountered a male with a firearm, who then opened fire, striking two officers.
A home the suspected gunman was believed to be inside caught fire and was quickly engulfed by flames. The fire at the home has since spread to two neighboring homes and a parked police vehicle.
No arrests have been made.
Police have closed several streets nearby. The public has been asked to avoid the area.
