3 die in Round Top shooting
Area traffic is shut down after last night's spree, the third on Oahu in less than a week
Three people were shot to death during a robbery at a Round Top Drive lookout last night, the third fatal shooting spree on Oahu in less than five days.
Police said officers were called to a report of an armed robbery at the lookout at 2929 Round Top Drive about 7:15 p.m. and found three people with gunshot wounds.
A man and a woman in their 50s or 60s were pronounced dead at the scene, said Emergency Services Department spokesman Bryan Cheplic. An injured man also in his 50s or 60s was taken to the Queen's Medical Center where he later died, Cheplic said.
Officers were subsequently called to another report of a home invasion robbery in a nearby house, according to police Capt. Frank Fujii. No one was hurt in the home.
A male suspect in the home invasion robbery was later arrested in a Jaguar, but Fujii said he could not confirm whether the cases were related.
Fujii said police were still searching for one or more possible suspects and kept Round Top Drive closed late into the night. Police closed all traffic from Makiki Heights Drive about 7:50 p.m.
Fujii also said that police want to talk to the person who initially called 911 about the lookout robbery. The call was cut off and the caller was not identified, he said.

Honolulu police officers searched vehicles and passengers near Round Top Drive last night after a triple shooting.
Last night's shooting was the third fatal shooting spree in less than five days on Oahu.
On Saturday evening, 24-year-old Daniel Truelove was gunned down at Nuuanu Avenue near Kukui Street among high-rise buildings. Police said the shooting stemmed from an argument between Truelove's brother, a pimp, and a prostitute who worked for another pimp. The prostitute's pimp shot at the Truelove brothers four to six times, police said.
Early Monday, 36-year-old Joel Norva shot and killed his ex-wife and then critically wounded her daughter before killing himself in a truck on Leokane Street near Pupuole Street in Waipahu. Police said a family dispute apparently touched off the shooting spree.
