A Waikoloa man is in police custody in connection with an affray in Waikoloa early Monday (November 24) that sent two men to the hospital.

At 5 a.m. Monday, South Kohala patrol officers responded to a report of a possible domestic abuse incident on Makuakane Street in Waikoloa Village. While en route, police received additional reports that a man was threatening a woman with a gun, that an affray was in progress involving several persons and that someone had been stabbed.

When officers arrived, a man was being detained by persons at the scene, who reported that he was responsible for threatening a woman with a firearm and for cutting two men with a knife. Police recovered a knife and arrested 20-year-old Gary Morrison of Waikoloa.

A 21-year-old Hāwī man had a laceration to his arm and a 22-year-old Waikoloa man had a laceration to his leg. Both men were taken to North Hawaiʻi Community Hospital, where they were treated for their injuries and released.

Police took Morrison first to the South Kohala police station for processing and then to the Kona police cellblock while detectives from the Area II Criminal Investigations Section continue the investigation.
