Hawaii County police have charged a 68-year-old Hilo man in connection with a gunshot that shattered the window of a passing van containing six members of a Volcano family Tuesday in the Hawaiian Acres subdivision.
Victor Kwock Chung Chun was charged Wednesday with first-degree reckless endangering, permit to acquire firearms, second-degree commercial promotion of marijuana, second-degree promotion of a detrimental drug, two counts of first-degree promotion of a detrimental drug and three counts of possessing drug paraphernalia.
Police said Chun had been shooting at a dog he suspected of killing chickens at a house on Road 10 when a van with a couple and four children passed into the line of fire. No one was injured in the shooting.
Police recovered a firearm while executing a search warrant at the house.
Another man was also arrested but released later Tuesday night pending further investigation.
