Honolulu police arrested a 20-year-old man today in connection with the shooting death of Steve Feliciano at Ala Moana Center’s parking lot Christmas night.

Dae Han Moon turned himself in this morning after a Honolulu grand jury indicted him Thursday for second-degree murder.

Moon was arrested at 10:15 a.m. at the Honolulu Police Department headquarters on Beretania Street. In addition to the second-degree murder charge, Moon was also arrested on three weapons counts, one auto theft count and one count on use of a firearm.

His bail is set at $2 million.

Feliciano died Wednesday at Queen’s Medical Center after he suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the back of the head Sunday night at the Ala Moana Center parking lot.

Police and prosecutors said Feliciano and some friends went to the parking structure at Ala Moana Center at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday to get some marijuana from another person.

Before they could pick up marijuana, Moon and his friends showed up in a vehicle. Deputy Prosecutor Chasid Sapolu said one of Moon’s friends started a fight with Feliciano and that others joined in.

After the fight, Moon returned to his car and grabbed a firearm. He pointed it “and struck the victim once on the head with the firearm and pointed it and fired a shot into the back of the victim’s head,” Sapolu told the court Thursday.

Police said the shooting happened on the fifth floor of the center’s Ewa wing parking structure.

Feliciano was taken to Queen’s in critical condition. He was unresponsive and put on life support before he died Wednesday.
