The U.S. Army has confirmed that the man killed on Ala Wai Boulevard early Tuesday morning was a 22-year-old soldier from Schofield Barracks.
The soldier's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The 25th Infantry Division says it is cooperating with police in the investigation.
The shooting was reported at around 4 a.m.
Police officers were on the corner of Nahua Street and Kuhio Avenue when they saw a dark-colored truck speeding heading the wrong way on Nahua Street.
Police say the truck crossed Kuhio Avenue and stopped briefly on the sidewalk where officers approached the vehicle.
The truck then reversed back onto Nahua Street, turned onto Kuhio Avenue and accelerated toward an officer. The officer fired multiple shots at the truck as it drove towards him, narrowly missing him.
The truck then turned onto Lewers Street onto the sidewalk where two officers tried to stop the vehicle.
The truck continued on to the Ala Wai Boulevard where it struck two parked vehicles and a pole.
The driver of the truck began ramming several marked police vehicles before officers fired their guns at the driver.
"There were two separate shooting incidents -- one that occurred on Kuhio and one that occurred on Ala Wai," said Maj. Richard Robinson. "The one on Kuhio, a single officer fired; the one on Ala Wai, three officers were involved in the shooting."
The driver was in extremely critical condition and died after he got to the hospital.
Three officers were hospitalized and were released. They were injured when the driver tried to ram them with his truck.
Five police cars were damaged.
The officers involved in the shooting were placed on a three-day administrative leave while the incident is being investigated.
The Ala Wai Boulevard was closed between Seaside and Lewers Streets while police investigated the scene.
The closure caused a traffic jam that lasted for hours.
