HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) — Honolulu police are asking for the public's assistance in locating a 22-year-old man who is still on the run over a week since a fatal Chinatown shooting. He's wanted in connection with the incident. 

On Friday, authorities identified the suspect as Tiseya Eric Puapuaga. He's described as standing 6'1" inches tall, weighing 350 pounds, and having black hair and brown eyes. 

Law enforcement officials say Puapuaga used a handgun to fire several shots at a man who was sitting outside Maunakea Liquor & Grocery at around 11:45 p.m. last Wednesday. 

He was seen fleeing the scene in a white Toyota Matriz that has since been recovered.
