Police are looking for a 21-year-old Kailua-Kona man they describe as armed and dangerous in connection with an attempted murder investigation.

Another Kailua-Kona man, 24-year-old Kainoa Lindo, was taken into custody by police on Friday on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder, but was later released without being charged pending further investigation.
