2 charged in connection with midday Makiki shooting

Two men have been charged in connection with a midday shooting in Makiki that resulted in injuries to a 1-year-old boy.

Austin Lee and Blaeden Leech, both age 20, were charged today with first-degree attempted murder. Their bail was set at $1 million each, police said.

Police said both men surrendered themselves to officers on Saturday.

The shooting occurred about 11 a.m. Thursday near a parking lot at the rear of a small two-story retail building on the corner of Pensacola and Young streets. Two vehicles in the parking lot were damaged by gunfire.

Three adults and two boys, ages 8 months and 1 year, were inside a Ford Explorer that was hit by bullets. One of the adults and the 1-year-old were injured by shattered glass.
