A 15-foot tiger shark was reportedly spotted in Lanikai Thursday morning.

Ocean Safety officials were notified by the Honolulu Fire Dept. that a military aircraft had spotted the shark 400 feet offshore. The sighting was reported at 8:20 a.m.

Ocean Safety did not post signs because the area is beyond its jurisdiction, but says the Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement and Dept. of Land and Natural Resources have been notified.
