Despite a reluctance by a victim to press charges, prosecutors are formally accusing a 33-year-old Wahiawa man with shooting a Mililani man in the chest last weekend.
Prosecutors charged Mack Fesagiga-McCormick Wednesday with second-degree attempted murder, a weapons violation and being a felon in possession of firearm. His bail was set at $500,000.
Because the 35-year-old victim declined to press charges, police arrested the suspect at the Wahiawa police station at 12:05 a.m Tuesday only on a weapons violation and of being a felon in possession of firearm.
Police said the victim reported being shot in the chest by a man with a silver, semi-automatic handgun about 1:15 a.m. Saturday. Paramedics took him from the intersection of Kealakaa Street and Lanikuhana Avenue to a hospital in serious condition, Emergency Medical Services reported.
Fesagiga-McCormick’s record includes two felony convictions, beginning in 2001, for breaking into a cars.
