HONOLULU (AP) - A Hawaii man has been found guilty of the attempted murder of a man who got pinned under his own car and died.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports a jury Monday also found Brandon Reis, of Pearl City, guilty of using a firearm to commit the attempted murder, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possessing a firearm while under indictment for other crimes and carrying a firearm in the open without a license.
He faces a mandatory life sentence with possible release on parole for the attempted murder at sentencing in January.
He also faces a mandatory 20-year prison term for using a firearm in the attempted murder and maximum 10-year terms for each of the other charges.
Kyen Knowles died of asphyxia June 22, 2016.
Defense lawyer Keith Shigetomi told the jury Reis fired at Knowles in self-defense.
