Hawaii County police today charged a 64-year-old Kau man after he allegedly shot two people Monday at separate times on or near his property.

After two men, ages 31 and 32, were shot, Albert Walter Todd III of Hawaiian Ocean View Estates was arrested on suspicion of first-and second-degree assault. He was charged with one count each of first-degree assault, second-degree assault and first-degree reckless endangering. His bail was set at $45,000.

Todd lives on the 92-2100 block of Aloha Boulevard, where both shootings occurred.

Police said a 32-year-old man was walking in a private driveway near Todd’s home when he was shot in the right leg. A 31-year-old man who contacted Todd after he heard about the shooting was shot in the left foot.

Hawaii County Fire Department medical personnel treated both men at the scene and transported them to the Kona Community Hospital, where they were reported in stable condition, police said.

Todd’s initial court appearance is set for Thursday morning at Kona District Court.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Detective Pernell Hanoa at Pernell.Hanoa@hawaiicounty.gov or at 326-4646, ext. 281.
