Hawaii resident, Randy Llanes, was killed Friday after being impaled by the bill of a swordfish, officials said.

Witnesses said a man in his 40s jumped from the pier at Honokohau Harbor in Kailua-Kona after shooting a fish with a speargun. The fish, who was still alive, reportedly became aggressive as Llanes attempted to retrieve it. The killer fish weighed in at about 3 feet long with a bill about 3 feet. It weighed about 40 pounds.
