  • 2018 January 12 SPT - HSA PHOTO BY BRUCE ASATO The Armed Services Disciplinary Control Board put out an advisory on Waikiki crime, specifically in the Kalakaua Avenue/Royal Hawaiian Avenue intersection late December. There are about a dozen establishments in this area that were mentioned in the Advisory from Moose's to Tsunamis and Club Alley Cat. ASDCB meets periodically and can place establishment off limits that would mean military members who frequent them could face punishment up to court martial.

Prosecutors charged a 22-year-old man in connection with the shooting death of a 40-year-old man near Haleiwa Beach Park early Saturday.

Kaden K. Kanae appeared at Honolulu District Court today after he was charged Sunday night with second-degree murder and firearm-related charges involving the death of the victim identified in court records as Thomas McCandless Jr.

Kanae’s bail is set at $1 million.

He was free on bail at the time of the deadly shooting for a robbery case in Waikiki.

Of Saturday’s shooting in Haleiwa, police said Kanae and McCandless were involved in a fight at approximately 12:45 a.m. Saturday at which time Kanae allegedly shot McCandless.

He was taken to Wahiawa General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police arrested Kanae in Wahiawa at about 4:25 a.m. that morning on suspicion of murder and criminal contempt of court.

He was free on bail at the time of the shooting for the Waikiki robbery case that occurred in August.
