A man who police had identified as one of Hawaii's "most wanted" fugitives was shot and killed by officers early Friday, according to Hawaii Island police.
Police spotted Ronald Barawis in a vehicle outside a fast food restaurant in Hilo, Hawaii, just after midnight on Friday. When officers ordered the 38-year-old out of the car, "he instead drove over barriers within the drive-thru and accelerated his vehicle," driving directly at an officer and ramming police cars, according to a statement from police.
Barawis was profiled in an episode of local public access show "Hawaii Island's Most Wanted" that was scheduled to air Friday, the day he was killed in the shooting.
Three patrol officers fatally shot 38-year-old Ronald Barawis Jr., who had a shotgun, rifle, and two semi-automatic guns within reach in the car he was driving, police say. He also had a bullet-proof vest in the vehicle.
this literally happened yesterday 2/5/2016 the investigation is currently active and not yet concluded. perhaps there will be video released once it is wrapped up.
plus given his previous conviction for SHOOTING at officers and his latest crime spree, attempted murder from the Dec 29 incident in upper Kaumana, i'd say they acted appropriately in this situation
