3 men arrested in attempted murder

Three men were arrested yesterday in connection with an attempted murder last week on Booth Road in Pauoa.

Honolulu police arrested the men ages 23, 25 and 31 without incident. All three are from Kalihi.

Police say the 23-year-old suspect entered the victim's home at 10:20 p.m. July 2 and pointed a .38-caliber handgun at a visitor there and then burst into the victim's room and shot the victim in the stomach. The 41-year-old victim was taken to The Queen's Medical Center in serious condition. No other information about his condition was available today.

Detective Gary Lahens said police received a tip Saturday night that led them to one of the three suspects. That suspect then identified the other two suspects, including the alleged gunman.

Lahens said the motive in the shooting appears to be robbery but the investigation is continuing. No charges have been filed.

Two of the juveniles fled. The cab driver said one of the remaining juveniles hit him on the head from behind with a large object, knocking him out. When he regained consciousness, the cab driver discovered his wallet missing.
