KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii » A judge is releasing a man acquitted of charges in a Kailua-Kona shooting, but on the condition he receives psychiatric care and treatment.

Raymond Lee Robinson was acquitted earlier this week of 10 charges in the April 5 rampage in the parking lot of King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel. Robinson was accused of firing 28 rounds from a rifle and two handguns into the air.

He was charged with first-degree terroristic threatening, first-degree reckless endangering, second-degree reckless endangering, reckless driving, criminal property damage and five firearms charges.

The case was heard in a stipulated-facts trial before a judge. Robinson did not contest accounts that he sped into the resort parking lot and opened fire, West Hawaii Today reported Friday. Police arrested Robinson without any injuries.

Judge Ronald Ibarra’s ruling orders Robinson’s release on the condition that he receives psychiatric care and treatment. He must also live in a group or care home, take all prescribed medicine and report to a parole officer.

Details of his condition were not available because his doctor reports are confidential.
