HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man convicted of a stabbing in Chinatown avoided a prison sentence Monday.

Hine Laloulu was originally charged with attempted murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of assault. A Circuit Court judge sentenced him to probation.

Antonius Toloai, 32, was stabbed in the stomach on River Street April 3rd, six days after Joseph Peneueta, 35, was shot and killed in the same area.

At the time, police said there was an ongoing turf war between rival gangs in Chinatown.
