Hawaiʻi Island police have identified the man who shot himself following an attempted murder and suicide in the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates subdivision last week.

He was identified as 48-year-old Clyde Hawse Criswell, also known as Cris Criswell, of Ocean View.

Shortly after 7 p.m. on March 12, Kaʻū patrol officers responded to a report of a shooting at a property on Tiki Lane at the intersection of Luau Drive.

Police investigation determined that two men, who live in separate dwellings on the property, got into an argument. The victim, a 37-year-old man, entered his house and Criswell followed him and shot him. He then stepped out of the house and fatally shot himself.
