  • DENNIS ODA / DODA@STARADVERTISER.COM

    Co-defendents Denzel Davis, second from left, and Keith L. Rambin appeared in District Court, April 3, on charges of attempted murder and robbery in connection with the shooting that occurred at 532 Cummins St. in the early morning hours of March 28th.

A 21-year-old man pleaded not guilty to allegedly shooting a 46-year-old man in a robbery in Kakaako.

Keith L. Rambin, of no local address, appeared at his arraignment at Circuit Court today via closed-circuit video link from the Oahu Community Correctional Center after an Oahu grand jury indicted him for attempted second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and firearm offenses.

A deputy public defender pleaded not guilty to the charges on behalf of Rambin.

Denzel Davis, 22, of Wahiawa, also appeared in court via a closed-circuit link from OCCC after he was indicted with first-degree robbery and firearm offenses.

Attorney Ben Ignacio pleaded not guilty to the charges on Davis’ behalf. Attorney Jeffrey Hawk is representing Davis in the case.

Judge Colette Garibaldi confirmed bail for Rambin and David at $1 million each and set their trial for June.

During the early morning hours inside a building on 532 Cummins St. on Mar. 28, Rambin allegedly shot the victim in the chest.

Prior to the shooting, a deputy prosecutor had said Davis approached the victim and demanded money. Rambin then entered the establishment and punched the man in the face before he and Davis left.

The victim walked outside of the bar to lock the door. A scuffle ensued and Rambin shot the man before he and Davis fled.

Police said the victim sought help from a manager at an adjacent business inside the building and asked him to call 911. Emergency Medical Services transported the 46-year-old man to a hospital in critical condition.

Police said Rambin and Davis turned themselves in on Apr. 1.
