The woman wanted for an attempted murder in Makaha has been charged.

Authorities arrested May Iwa Brewer late Saturday night in Ewa Beach.

Police had been looking for the 32-year-old after a shooting incident involving another woman last Sunday.

Officials say the 40-year-old victim was seated in her vehicle on Farrington Highway in Makaha when she was approached by Brewer. Police say Brewer brandished a handgun, demanded money, and struggled for the victim's property.

During the struggle, the handgun went off, and the victim was struck in her head. Brewer got into a nearby vehicle operated by an unknown male and drove off.

Brewer was charged with attempted murder and robbery in the first-degree.
