Kaulike Kalama Wiki – Kaulike Kalama Bio
Kaulike Kalama, a nine-year veteran of the force. The Honolulu Police Department identified Tiffany Enriquez and Kaulike Kalama as the two officers killed in a Diamond Head neighborhood on Sunday.
In a press conference, Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard identified the two victims as Officers Tiffany Enriquez and Kaulike Kalama.
“They were like my kids. They were with me for five years at receiving desk when I was a major there,” an emotional police Chief Susan Ballard said while remembering the lives of fallen officers Tiffany Enriquez and Kaulike Kalama.
“I knew each one of them very personally.”
Kaulike Kalama Suspect Killer
The suspect, identified as 69-year-old Jerry Hanel then allegedly set fire to the home which spread and destroyed at least seven other homes.
Investigators believe Hanel died in the fire but say he and two women are unaccounted for.
Officials say they continue to actively search for the suspect as a precaution.

In the wake of the shooting, the suspect allegedly set fire to the home. Those flames spread quickly to several nearby homes as firefighters weren’t able to gain access.
At last count, at least four homes were destroyed and several more sustained significant damage.
It appears the flames in the area are no longer active, but authorities have not yet said whether any of the home fires have been extinguished.
When the fires were at their height, flames and thick smoke could be seen for miles.
Soon after the shooting was reported, the home where it happened caught fire and became fully engulfed in flames.
Witnesses saw injured officers being dragged into the street. One bystander said rescuers could be seen performing CPR on an officer in the immediate aftermath of the shooting.
Bystanders also told HNN that they believed at least one other person on the property was stabbed. Authorities did not immediately have information on the two stabbing victims, but they’re believed to be the landlord and a neighbor — both of whom are unaccounted for at this time.
Investigators in Honolulu are combing through the charred rubble of seven homes and searching for the remains of a man who police say stabbed his landlord, fatally shot two officers and set a fire that destroyed his bungalow and six other homes.
“It will likely take days to process the crime scene, including the recovery of any remains,” Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard said at a press briefing. “At this time there are three people who are unaccounted for, including the suspect.”

As smoke billowed from the home, Hanel reportedly began firing his weapon, killing Officers Tiffany Enriquez and Kaulike Kalama.
“They were like my kids,” Ballard said on Sunday, choking back tears. “I know each one of them very personally.”
Both Enriquez, a seven-year veteran of the police force, and Kalama, who had served for nine years, were parents. Authorities say their deaths are the first line-of-duty police killings in Honolulu since 2012.
