Police arrested today a 25-year-old man wanted in connection with last month’s fatal shooting of a 20-year-old man at Ala Moana Center.
Lance Bermudez was arrested at about 7:30 a.m. in the Kipapa Gulch area below Kamehameha Highway after SWAT officers with canines arrived at his location, police said.
He was the second man wanted on suspicion of hindering prosecution in connection with the Christmas Day shooting of Stevie Feliciano. Bermudez had been indicted in the case and a $500,000 warrant was issued for his arrest.
Besides Bermudez, William K.C. Kan, 21, was also charged with first-degree hindering prosecution. Kan was arrested Dec. 28 at his Punchbowl home and later released on $25,000 bail.
Bermudez and Kan allegedly threatened a witness to the shooting.
Authorities said at about 7:30 p.m. the night of the shooting, Feliciano and his friends went to the parking structure at Ala Moana Center to get marijuana. Before they could pick it up, Moon and his friends arrived in a vehicle and one of Moon’s friends initiated a fight.
After the altercation, Moon went to his car and grabbed a gun. He struck Feliciano with it and fired into the back of his head, prosecutors said.
Moon, who has been charged with second-degree murder and other offenses, turned himself in on Dec. 31. His bail was set at $2 million.
Both Moon and Kan have pleaded not guilty.
