Man faces charges in shooting
A 41-year-old Haiku man faces assault and terroristic threatening charges for allegedly aiming a pellet gun at his neighbors and shooting one of them Friday, police said.
John Amoral was released from custody at the Wailuku Police Station over the weekend after posting $2,200 in bail and being charged with two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening and one count of third-degree assault.
Police responded to an 11 a.m. call at a Puuomalei Road residence in Haiku. Witnesses told police that Amoral threatened to shoot two neighbors, a 38-year-old man and a 60-year-old man.
Amoral shot one of the men, who suffered an abrasion but wasn't seriously wounded, police said.
