Man, 23, charged in fatal shooting of Makaha man


A 23-year-old Makaha man with a history of drug-related charges was charged Friday night with second-degree murder in the shooting death of his one-time friend, 26-year-old Christopher K. Medeiros, himself convicted of five felonies.

Chad Duran also faces three firearms charges. He was being held in lieu of $750,000 bail

Duran allegedly shot Medeiros in the head Wednesday night at Medeiros’ Makaha apartment on Lahaina Street. A neighbor brought Medeiros to the Wai­anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center. Paramedics picked him up and transported him in critical condition to the Queen’s Medical Center, where he died Thursday.

Duran, who lives three streets away from Medeiros on Noho­lio Road, was found and arrested shortly after the shooting on suspicion of attempted murder.
