EWA BEACH (HawaiiNewsNow) - An Ewa Beach man who allegedly pointed a loaded gun at his girlfriend has been charged with second-degree attempted murder.
Honolulu Police charged 30-year-old Abraham Primacio in the incident, which occurred early Saturday morning at a Mihoku Street residence. He remained in police custody Sunday, unable to post $75,000 bail.
Investigators said Primacio pointed a gun at his 28-year-old girlfriend and pulled the trigger, but the gun failed to go off. The man then allegedly reloaded the gun and pointed the weapon at his own head, but did not fire.
Police said the woman managed to escape from the home with her four-year-old daughter, but a seven-year-old daughter remained in the home with Primacio.
Police arrested Primacio at 4:45 a.m. Saturday, four hours after they were initially called to the scene.
