Prosecutors have charged a 30-year-old man in connection with an alleged shooting at an illegal game room where two people sustained gunshot wounds in Makaha.

Stephen J. Boter was charged Wednesday with first-degree assault and two firearm violations. His aggregate bail is set at $150,000.

On the morning of Jan. 1, police responded to the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center on a report of a 36-year-old man and 43-year-old woman in the emergency room with gunshot wounds.

An investigation determined the victims were shot by a male suspect in a game room in Waianae, police said.

Boter was identified as the shooting suspect. Police arrested him Tuesday in Waianae on suspicion of attempted murder and firearm offenses.

Boter has a criminal record of two felony assault convictions and two misdemeanor convictions for criminal property damage and criminal trespassing.
