A hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii, was placed on lockdown late Saturday after an armed man fired shots through the door of a guest room and barricaded himself inside. There were no reports of any injuries, Hawaii News Now reported.

Guests and staff at the Kahala Resort & Hotel were sheltering in place, and guests in rooms near the incident were evacuated, the news site added.

"Nobody is injured. Everybody is accounted for. We're just waiting for the suspect to give up," the news site quoted Police Captain Brian Lynch as saying.

Videos on social media showed guests in the hotel's ballroom with police present at the scene. An eyewitness told Reuters about 75-80 people were in the ballroom.

"This evening, an individual with a firearm barricaded himself in one of the guest rooms at The Kahala," the hotel said in a statement on Saturday, according to Hawaii News Now.

"Our security personnel and law enforcement have evacuated guests and employees from the immediate area and everyone is sheltering in place."
