MAKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The man accused of injuring five teens in a Makiki BB gun shooting on Friday has posted bail and been released.

25-year old Justin Perry Souvana is allegedly involved in the incident, but not the shooter.

Police have also recovered the van used in Friday's incident.

Emergency responders say a 15-year-old boy was in stable condition after being hit in the upper torso with what appeared to be a BB gun pellet. Four other teens also sustained minor injuries.

The incident happened about 12:40 p.m. near the Wilder Avenue fire station, as the teens were walking in a group. 

Witnesses say suspects in a van drove by the teens and started shooting with a BB gun.

It's unclear if the suspects are linked to other incidents.

This is the latest in a spate of BB gun-related incidents recently. In all, police are investigating 18 reports involving BB guns over the past month, including six that resulted in injuries. 

“There’s no rhyme or reason," said Capt. John McCarthy of the Honolulu Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division. "We don’t believe any one individual is responsible for all. One individual may be responsible for a couple or so, but they’re not all connected. They are definitely separate.”

Police have not yet arrested any suspects but say they are investigating some leads.

Mary Bagasol, who works near to where the Makiki incident happened, said she "heard this van stop and just start shooting at the kids."

"It made me worry because we always walk down here and nothing really happens here, you know?" she said. "And we thought it was safe, but after that incident, I don’t know."

Jovie Domingo, another witness who lives and works in the area, was startled by the events.

"It’s a normal Friday, just walking to get lunch when you suddenly hear a BB gun, just shooting at the kids," he said.

Police are still looking for the others involved in Friday's incident and are working to see if it's connected to the other cases.
