Shortly after the suspect allegedly fired the first shot, police were clearing the beach and beachside eateries at the Kahala Hotel and yelling at guests and passersby to get inside. More than 100 people were ushered into the ballroom, where they remained into the early morning. Guests staying in rooms near the barricaded man were also evacuated, and others were asked to stay in the lobby.
As the situation dragged on, the hotel provided displaced guests with food, blankets and pillows.
When they finally entered his room, they found he had died.
