HONOLULU (KHNL) - A 21-year-old man suspected in a deadly shooting in Chinatown over the weekend remains locked up at Honolulu police headquarters awaiting charges.

Officers arrested Iosefa Pasene on suspicion of murder Monday night. Investigators believe he's a member of a San Francisco-based gang and was one of two gunmen Saturday.

Police say two men got out of a car, confronted Joseph Peneueta, 35, at the corner of North Pauahi Street and River Street, and opened fire. Peneueta was shot multiple times and died at the scene.

The search for a second suspect continues.
