Man arrested after threatening girlfriend with loaded gun | News
EWA BEACH (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu Police arrested a man for attempted murder after he allegedly pointed a loaded gun at his girlfriend early Saturday at an Ewa Beach residence.
Police responded to the home at Mihoku Street after a 28-year-old woman called 911 at about 12:50 a.m. According to authorities, a 30-year-old man had pointed the gun at her and pulled the trigger, but the gun didn't discharge.

The suspect remained in the home for four hours before police were able to arrest him.
