A 19-year-old Kaka'ako man was arrested early Monday morning after he allegedly shot a woman with an "airsoft" gun in downtown Honolulu.
The woman, 30, told police she was standing along Merchant Street about 1:50 a.m. when a silver SUV drove by and the driver shot her with a pellet or airsoft gun.
Airsoft guns look very much like real weapons but shoot plastic BBs instead of bullets.
The victim, who was not seriously injured, took down the SUV's license plate number and called police, who found the vehicle, with the driver inside, parked at the Diamond Head lookout.
Police took the woman to the lookout, and she positively identified the SUV driver, who was then arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, police said.
Police said the suspect gave them permission to search the SUV and that they found four airsoft guns.
