Detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigation Section have charged a 68-year-old Hilo man in connection with a gunshot that shattered the window of a passing van Tuesday (March 13, 2012) in the Hawaiian Acres subdivision.

At 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, Victor Kwock Chung Chun was charged with first-degree reckless endangering, permit to acquire firearms, second-degree commercial promotion of marijuana, second-degree promotion of a detrimental drug, two counts of first-degree promotion of a detrimental drug and three counts of possessing drug paraphernalia.

Police recovered a firearm while executing a search warrant at the house.

Another man, 47-year-old Ivan Okada of Kurtistown, was also arrested but released later Tuesday night pending further investigation.
