A 10-foot shark was spotted at Maili Beach on the west side of Oahu today around 1:30 p.m. by an on-duty police officer.

Bryan Cheplic, public information officer of the Honolulu Emergency Services Department, said lifeguards were informed and they cleared the water and posted warning signs.
Cheplic said a lifeguard patrolling the area did not spot the shark but it is being considered a confirmed sighting. Signs will remain up and lifeguards will reassess the area tomorrow morning.
