Man charged with shooting another man with BB gun

A 37-year-old man was charged with shooting a man who had said he was wounded in the neck by his father with a BB gun Tuesday in Makaha.

Conrado Asuncion Sr., of Makaha, was charged Thursday with first-degree terroristic threatening and third-degree assault. He was released after posting $25,000 bail.

Police said a 19-year-old was passing by Asuncion’s home about 7:20 p.m. Tuesday when Asuncion used a dangerous instrument to injure the teen, who was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police arrested Asuncion at his Lahaina Street the following day about 6:40 p.m.

Police radio communications said the teen reported he was injured when his father shot him in the neck with a .22-caliber BB gun.

Paramedics treated the teen near Farrington Highway and Jade Street and took him to the Queen’s Medical Center in stable condition.
