NANAKULI, Hawaii -

Two Maili men were arrested after an afternoon fight erupted into gunfire on Farrington Highway Thursday.

According to police, a HPD sergeant was driving along Farrington Highway near Hakimo Road around 3:15 p.m. Thursday when he noticed a fight on the side of the highway.

After pulling over, the sergeant reportedly heard a gunshot and located the man who allegedly fired the weapon.

That suspect, a 27-year-old man, attempted to flee on a moped but was later apprehended.

According to police, that suspects brother, a 28-year-old man, supplied the gun and handed it over to the alleged shooter.

The alleged shooter was arrested on three felony counts including place to keep a firearm, reckless endangerment and terroristic threatening.

His brother was arrested on three misdemeanor counts.

Witnesses reported several police units in the area, which caused a traffic backup along the one-lane highway on Oahu's Leeward Coast.

No charges have been filed yet against the brothers.
