Honolulu police are investigating a shooting Tuesday night in Makaha after a man in his 50s allegedly shot a 19-year-old family member with a .22 caliber air rifle.
The incident happened around 7:30 p.m. near Farrington Highway and Jade Street, police said.
Emergency Medical Services personnel transported the victim to the Queen’s Medical Center in stable condition.
It’s unclear if the projectile was a BB or pellet. It’s also unknown what the exact relationship between the suspect and victim is.
No arrests have been made yet, but police have opened a second-degree assault case.
It’s against the law to carry or discharge an air gun on any street or public parcel. It is also illegal to discharge an air gun in a way that endangers people or property.
