HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The suspect involved in an officer-involved shooting in Mountain View has been charged.

Authorities said 30-year-old Michael Soares was charged Sunday for first-degree criminal property damage, first-degree criminal trespass and second-degree reckless endangering.

Police said Soares refused orders to get out of what appeared to be a stolen SUV on Ihope Road on Saturday morning.

He then drove into a garage and reversed towards an ambulance, two firemen and a resident. One of the officers then fired a round through the windshield of the vehicle.

Authorities eventually took Soares into custody.

No one was hurt.

Soares’ bail has been set at $27,000. He is expected to appear in court on Monday afternoon.
