Charges filed following shooting at chicken fight in West Oahu that left 2 dead
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The adult suspect accused of opening fire at a chicken fight over the weekend, leaving two people dead and three injured, was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder, the Honolulu Police Department said.
Jacob Borge, 23, of Waianae, also faces second-degree murder charges, three counts of second-degree attempted murder and other firearms offenses. His bail was set at $2 million.
The second suspect is a 16-year-old boy so a petition for the charges was filed.
The shooting happened around midnight Friday on Kaukamana Road in Maili.
“There was an argument at the end of the chicken fight,” Thoemmes said. “That argument escalated to where gunshots were fired.”
Honolulu police said they witnessed two of the victims — a man and a woman — being taken to the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center in personal vehicles.
Officials say both victims were in critical condition before being pronounced dead at the hospital.
When officers arrived at the hospital, three additional people were also being treated for gunshot wounds. Authorities said those three people were subsequently treated and released.
Both suspects turned themselves in to police on Tuesday night.
