Honolulu police arrested a second shooting suspect in connection with Sunday’s fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy in Makaha.

Police said investigators determined a 20-year-old man also shot the victim at Makaha Beach. The suspect also allegedly set a white Ford Focus on fire near the end of Waianae Valley Road several hours after the shooting.

Officers of the District 8 Crime Reduction Unit arrested him at Makaha Beach Tuesday night on suspicion of second-degree murder, first-degree arson and firearm offenses.

Charges are pending. He remains in custody as of this morning.

Prosecutors had charged a 16-year-old boy Monday with second-degree murder and firearm offenses in connection with the deadly shooting.

Police responded to calls of multiple shots being fired at the beach sometime before 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

The 20-year-old man and 16-year-old boy allegedly fled in the Ford Focus driven by a 16-year-old girl. An 18-year-old woman was also in the vehicle at the time.

Police arrested the teenage girl and woman Monday on suspicion of first-degree hindering prosecution. They were released pending further investigation.
