People shot by police on the Big Island were armed with a gun in more instances than those on Oahu.
In one unarmed case in Hawaii County, a man left his rifle in his home before encountering police outside while unarmed. In another vehicle case, a man allegedly rammed police vehicles with his car but also had multiple firearms in his backseat. Including both would bring the "Firearm" total to 57% instead of 43%.
