The 23-year-old man shot by police last month outside a Sheridan Street karaoke bar was previously assaulted in the bar and was holding a 9mm semiautomatic gun over a group of men when police shot him, said Vickie Kapp, deputy city prosecutor.
An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment today charging Daniel C. Kim, of Manoa, with attempted second-degree murder, terroristic threatening and firearm offenses stemming from an incident outside Little Seoul karaoke bar Aug. 22.
A state judge set bail for Kim at $250,000.
Kapp said Kim and another man were upset after they were assaulted. But she said the man Park pointed the gun at wasn't involved in the assault.
Police said when officers arrived, Kim had already fired several shots and refused to put down his handgun. One officer fired three shots at Kim hitting him in the abdomen.
An ambulance took Kim to Queen's Medical Center in critical but stable condition.
