Just two days before the deadly shooting in Waikiki, 18-year-old Jordan Smith was arrested for misdemeanor third degree assault.
An 18-year-old man was arrested on Sunday evening, in connection with a fatal shooting in Waikiki. Jordan Smith has been charged with second-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder, two counts of second-degree attempted murder and four firearms offenses, according to police.
Bail has been set at $1 million.
Island News learned that just one day before Saturday's deadly shooting, Smith appeared in court on an assault charge.
He was arrested for misdemeanor third degree assault on Thursday. According to an Oahu Intake Service Center Bail Report, after Smith's court appearance on Sept. 15, he was given supervised release without posting bail. The report lists Smith as a "moderate risk."
It indicates Smith is from Delaware, where he has a juvenile record. He had been "staying with a friend" in Hawaii for only a week before he was arrested for the alleged assault.
Smith also reportedly worked for a couple days as a "security guard" here in Hawaii.
He is scheduled to be in court on the assault charge on Nov. 29.
