19-year-old man indicted in Aliamanu shooting
An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment yesterday charging a 19-year-old man in connection with a home-invasion robbery in Aliamanu last month in which another 19-year-old man was shot and critically wounded.
The indictment charges Kevin Khamsouk with two counts of first-degree robbery, three counts of kidnapping, first-degree burglary and six counts of carrying or using a firearm while committing those crimes.
Timothy Lapitan was shot Aug. 11 at 1256 Hulakui Drive. He is no longer in critical condition.
The indictment lists Lapitan and two others who were in the home at the time as the kidnapping victims. The indictment does not charge Khamsouk with shooting Lapitan. However, Honolulu police said they are no longer looking for the shooter.
They arrested Khamsouk last week along with three boys, ages 16, 16 and 17, in connection with the robbery. Police have referred the boys to Family Court. Police identified an 18-year-old man as a participant in the robbery but have not charged him.
Five males, dressed in black and wearing masks or bandannas and armed with what witnesses said appeared to be handguns, entered the Hulakui Drive home and removed several items, according to a police affidavit. During the robbery, one of the robbers shot Lapitan, police said.
