Big Island police are investigating a shooting in which an officer wounded a man who allegedly drove an SUV toward police after a short vehicle chase in Hilo. It happened just before 11:30 a.m. Monday when police responded to a report of a domestic incident at a vehicle in the Panaewa area. The 38-year-old driver fled in the vehicle, and officers pursued the vehicle to Stainback Highway. The driver then turned around and drove toward the officers. One officer fired three shots. The suspect was shot in the torso and is reported in stable condition. He's being held on suspicion of terroristic threatening and more charges are pending.
