A former employee of the Montgomery County, Tennessee Sheriff’s Department was among two officers killed in a shooting yesterday near Diamond Head in Hawaii.
Honolulu police said Tiffany Enriquez and Kaulike Kalama were shot by a man as the two responded to reports of a woman being stabbed in Waikiki. Both officers were wearing bulletproof vests, but were hit above them and killed.
Enriquez, a seven-year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department, previously worked as a jail deputy in Tennessee.
Police identified the gunman as Jerry Hanel, a man in his 60’s, and said he was “unaccounted for,” along with two people who were inside of a home that had been set on fire.
The incident remains under investigation.
