HONOLULU (KHNL) - A man charged in Saturday's deadly shooting in Chinatown appeared before an Oahu judge Wednesday.

Iosefa Pasene, 21, is charged with murder, terroristic threatening and two firearms offenses. His bail is set at $1 million.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.

Investigators say Pasene and Zorro Ramon Rye, 24, armed themselves with a rifle and a shotgun, and opened fire on Joseph Peneueta, 35, at the corner of North Pauahi and River streets.

Police arrested Rye Tuesday night. He's now charged with the same four counts and is set to make his initial court appearance Thursday.
