    WAIANAE, Hawaii -- A Waianae man was taken into police custody Saturday night after a shooting left one dead and two others fleeing the scene, police said.

    Honolulu Police said the shootout happened when three men tried to rob the homeowner at gunpoint at his home at Mai-u'u Road in Waianae in an apparent attempt to collect money from the man's illegal cockfighting business, police said.

    Police said the armed homeowner killed one of the alleged robbers.

    KITV's Denby Fawcett reported that Keith Kuraoka, 55, was taken into custody at the Honolulu Police Station.

    Police said witnesses told them three men with weapons drove up Saturday morning and tried to break down Kuraoka's door.

    "They eventually got the front door opened, and that's when the gun shots were fired," said HPD Lt. Bill Kato.

    Police said Kuroka had a rifle and a shotgun.

    "Statements were given that shots were fired at him, so he said he fired back," said Kapolei-Waianae District Lt. Farrel Sojot.

    When patrol units arrived, they found Jayson Sylva, 28, barely alive lying in front of Kuraoka's house, police said. Authorities said Sylva was taken to Waianae Medical Center where he died.

    Criminal records show Sylva has 43 prior arrests, 12 of them felonies for everything from kidnapping to assault and had spent time in prison, KITV reported. :ugh: he should get a fucking medal for killing this POS.

    Police said they are still looking for the two other men who ran out of Kuraoka's house and drove away.

    Neighbor Momi Peters heard the shots and was terrified.

    "This kind of stuff you think you would only see in the movies. You never think it would happen in your neighborhood. It's kind of scary," Peters said.

    "They started pounding on the door. The resident of the house came out, and he had a couple of weapons -- a rifle and a shot gun. Statements were given that shots were fired at him so he said he fired back," Lt. Eric Yu said.

    Yu said the three men apparently wanted to rob Muraoka. Witnesses said Muraoka's girlfriend ran out of the house to safety.

    I'm confused

    this

    makes it sound like they actually broke into the house and then he fired on them, well actually that is what is says

    this however

    makes it sound like they pounded on the door, he came to to door pretty well armed, they shot at him and he fired back.


    wtf?

    my guess is, the story is mixed up somewhere. i don't know what Hawaii's legal system is like, but it could be that the homeowner shot first. who knows.

    although, considering one of the pieces of shit had 43 prior arrests, with 12 felonies, the jury might side with the homeowner.

    Prior bad acts. The jury will never hear about them.

    If he's a fucking retard. That opens the door for the prosecutor to explore prior bad acts.

    While I believe strongly in the right to self defense, I'm kind of torn on this situation. It's situations like this that anti-gunners use to argue against self defense laws. If true, the guys were coming to get money from an illegal cock fighting business. While we may see it as a home owner exercising his right to defend himself, other people see it as the law allowing a criminal to avoid justice for his actions.

    Trying to penalize the homeowner for defending himself when under determined attack is absurd. Throw the book at him for cockfighting, but it's not too difficult to see a regular citizen in that situtation.

    I hope they charged the perps with breaking and entering, attempted armed robbery, and other charges since they're the real crooks; actual threats to society instead of the guy that defending himself against armed instruders that happened to run an illegal cockfighting operation...
