Maui resort evacuated as cops kill suspected thief

By Associated Press

Hundreds of guests at a beachside Hawaii resort are returning to their hotel after police shot and killed a man in the parking lot who was suspected of stealing a vehicle.

Several hundred guests were evacuated after the shooting Tuesday afternoon and weren't allowed to return to their rooms while police were on the scene, said Winston Chinn, Mana Kai Maui Resort general manager.

Maui County spokesman Rod Antone says police received a report of a stolen vehicle in Kihei and found it in the resort's parking lot.

Antone says the suspect tried to flee in the vehicle and apparently pointed a handgun at an officer. The officer fired. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

Chinn says employees reported hearing gunshots, but the number of shots heard varies.
