A 48-year-old Kapaa man, who allegedly fired a gun to scare a group of children, has been released on bail.

Police said they responded to a report from the boys at about 2:15 p.m. that Yamagata had fired a gun at a tree to scare the children.
Yamagata was arrested on suspicion of first-degree reckless endangering and first-degree terroristic threatening. He was released after posting $10,000 bail.
