HONOLULU (KHNL) - An Oahu grand jury on Wednesday determined there's enough evidence to send a man, suspected of a deadly shooting in the Ala Moana area, to trial.

The panel indicted Phillip Deleon on eight counts, including murder, attempted murder, reckless endangering and firearms offenses.

Investigators say he shot and killed Shawn Powell, 35, outside a bar on Rycroft Street last Friday. Deleon is also accused of firing a shot towards a witness.

The 33-year-old remains in custody, unable to post $2 million bail.
