HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The suspect in a shooting outside a bowling alley in Aiea April 29th made his initial appearance at Honolulu District Court Monday.

Joseph Pasion, 31, is charged with second-degree attempted murder, criminal property damage, and firearms offenses. District Judge Leslie Hayashi confirmed his bail at $350,000 and set a preliminary hearing for Wednesday.

Pasion is accused of shooting a man, identified in court documents as Landon Dela Cruz, after a dispute inside Aiea Bowl. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder and survived.

According to a police affidavit, a witness inside Aiea Bowl told investigators that Dela Cruz and Pasion "started eye-balling each other from head to toe, throwing up their hands, and making (negative) gestures at each other." After the pair went out into the parking lot, Pasion reportedly said, "What, you get problem? Like trouble?"

The witness told police that the suspect eventually got behind the wheel of a Honda Odyssey van, and fired his gun at Dela Cruz as he drove through the parking lot. Investigators say the van struck a large planter as it left the scene.

Officers arrested Pasion at a hotel near the Honolulu International Airport last Friday.
