Hawaii island police arrested and charged an Ocean View man Thursday for discharging a firearm in a residential area.
At about 3 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a complaint from residents that Frederico Tacderan was shooting a firearm on the 92-9100 block of Tree Fern Lane in Ocean View.
Tacderan has been previously convicted of crimes that prohibited him from owning a gun or ammunition. After executing a search warrant on his residence, police recovered a firearm and ammunition.
He is being held on $11,500 bail pending his court appearance today.
