Justice Manumalo Kaio turned himself in to police at the Alapai police station Sunday afternoon. Police hunted him in the hours after the 10 p.m. shooting at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Lewers Street.

On Tuesday, police confirmed he was charged with second-degree murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a separate felony, and another firearms offense.

His bail has been set at $1 million.
