Maui police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide that occurred in South Maui on Friday morning.
Police were initially dispatched to a Kīhei residence at around 10:58 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 8, 2021 after receiving a cal from GPS Pendant Alarm.
The alarm company reported that while communicating with a subscriber via phone, they heard what sounded like gunshots.
Police conducted checks at the subscriber’s residence in Kīhei; however, the residence was unoccupied, according to police.
GPS Pendant Alarm was able to track the subscriber to an area off of Maui Veterans Highway, at which time police discovered a deceased 96-year-old man and a 95-year-old woman within a vehicle, both suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.
Police say a preliminary investigation at this time reveals that this was an apparent murder-suicide.
The investigation is on-going.
