Media Release (Update No. 2)

An autopsy was held today on the man who shot himself, ending the standoff with police in Hawaiian Beaches earlier this week. Hawai’i Island police have identified the man as 51-year-old Keith K. Cummings of Pāhoa. The pathologist was able to confirm that he died from a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The manner of death has been determined to be suicide.

Tuesday morning, (January 9), at about 12:20 a.m., patrol officers responded to a report of gunshots fired at a residence on Kamanu Street in Hawaiian Beaches. Upon their arrival, officers were confronted by a male with a firearm seated within a vehicle parked in the driveway of a residence.  Several more shots were fired upon the officers’ arrival, though it is unclear if any shots were directed at the officers. The occupant of the residence was able to leave home safely and is physically unharmed. 

The department’s Special Response Team responded to the scene, and crisis negotiators established communication with the suspect who remained in his vehicle.
