HONOLULU — Honolulu authorities took three people into custody on Sunday evening, one of whom is believed to be a suspect in a Waikiki shooting that left one dead and two others seriously injured, Hawaii News Now reported.

The three subjects were pulled from an apartment building that police partially evacuated when authorities moved in.

The manhunt came after a suspect fired an assault rifle Saturday morning at a group of people standing near Club Alley Cat in Waikiki, police said.

The man fired about 10 rounds at the group, police said. A 22-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died. Two other victims, a 27-year-old man and a 31-year-old man, were taken to a hospital in serious condition.

The Honolulu Police Department’s SWAT team and mobile command center staged in the parking lot of Shriners Hospital on Sunday. Officers told workers that the suspected getaway car from the shooting was found a few blocks away from the hospital, workers said.
