HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Prosecutors have charged an 18-year-old man with attempted murder after a melee in Waianae last Saturday left two people dead.

The suspect, Javen Lopez, was charged with three counts of attempted murder and multiple firearms charges.

Honolulu police say there were two shooters involved in the melee at Waianae Boat Harbor — the 18-year-old who was injured in the incident, and a 19-year-old who died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Authorities say the 19-year-old shot at two people before he was fatally shot.

Investigators said a 29-year-old died at the scene.

A 21-year-old woman who also injured during the shootout remains in critical condition.

Lopez’s bail is set at $2 million. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
