WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu police arrested a 17-year-old boy suspected as the triggerman in a BB gun drive-by shooting of a group of teens in Makiki Oct. 16 that injured a 15-year-old boy.

According to police, the suspect was arrested following a traffic stop while he was driving a moped near McCully Street and Ala Wai Boulevard around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

An officer recognized the boy as the alleged suspect in the BB gun shooting case that happened on Piikoi Street just near Wilder Avenue nearly three weeks ago.

The suspect, unidentified because he's a minor, was booked for six counts of second-degree assault.

The afternoon of the shooting, police arrested the suspected 25-year-old driver of a white minivan that witnesses described as being involved. Justin Souvanna has since posted a $2,000 bail after being charged with second-degree felony assault.

The incident was the 18th reported BB and/or pellet gun-related shooting on Oahu last month.
