Two Honolulu police officers were shot and killed when they responded to a call for help Sunday in Waikiki.

Following the shooting, a fire broke out at the home the officers had been called to. Three people, including the suspect, remain unaccounted for in the fire.

The chaotic crime scene drew the response of local police and fire as well as multiple other agencies, including the FBI and ATF.

Now the Honolulu Police Department and the community are mourning their slain officers and searching for the remains of the suspect.

 Woman called 911 Sunday morning around 9 a.m. HST and "said she needed help," according to Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard.

When Tiffany Enriquez arrived at the address in a Waikiki neighborhood, a woman who had been stabbed in the leg had already been found by another officer.

A woman called 911 Sunday morning around 9 a.m. HST and "said she needed help," according to Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard.

Honolulu Police have opened an investigation into two counts of first degree murder, one count of second degree assault and multiple accounts of first degree attempted murder against Hanel, Ballard said.

It could take several days to process the scene, which includes recovering the bodies of those unaccounted for after the fire, the chief said.

The woman who was stabbed was taken to Queens Medical Center for treatment, Ballard said. She was unsure of the woman's condition.
