In the early morning of April 11th, local time, at the Kahala Resort Hotel in Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii, a male gunman locked himself in the room and blocked the door of the house. After shooting several times outside the door, he confronted the police for 10 hours, and finally ended by shooting suicide.
It is reported that at about 18:00 on the same day, a man with a gun shot in from outside a room on the fourth floor of the hotel in a holiday hotel, and then locked himself in the room. The man fired at least five shots, according to hotel security personnel. After arriving at the scene, the police confronted the gunman in the room and persuaded him to surrender.
Police said that the family of the gunman may also live in a nearby resort, but he should have been the only one in the room at that time. The hotel subsequently issued a statement saying that local security personnel and law enforcement personnel had evacuated the hotel’s guests and employees and took refuge in the nearby safe area. At present, there is no news of casualties. The hotel of the accident has been blocked. As of 1 a.m. on the 11th, the hotel is still in lockdown. According to the source, the gunman is a member of the U.S. Navy.
From the 9th to the 10th, shootings also occurred in Missouri, Texas and other places in the United States, killing at least 2 people and injuring more than 10 others. These shootings are just the daily shootings in the United States. According to the statistics of the non-profit organization “Gun Violence Archives” in the first three months of this year, the number of shootings with more than 4 casualties reached 126, with 148 casualties and 481 respectively.
