Five indicted in
drug-related Aiea slaying

An Oahu grand jury has indicted five men, at least four of them affiliated with the Bad Boys Ilocano youth gang, in the murder of Aiea resident Greg Morishima last month.

Micah Kanahele, 22, Rosalino Ramos, 22, and Jason Rumbawa, 23, are charged with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and several firearms offenses in the Oct. 26 shooting at a Pamoho Place house.

Charged with first-degree robbery were Kevin Harris, 26, and the alleged driver of the getaway car, Anthony Brown, 23. Harris also was charged with keeping a loaded firearm in a prohibited place.

Prosecutors said Brown, Rumbawa, Ramos and Kanahele are members of the gang.

Rumbawa had recently ended parole after five felony convictions for multiple counts of terroristic threatening, reckless endangerment and a firearm offense, prosecutors said. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

Kanahele has two felony firearms convictions.

Morishima, 49, had gone to his friend's home to deliver some mangoes when he was allegedly confronted in the garage by a group of masked gunmen who demanded crystal methamphetamine. The group allegedly opened fire when Morishima told them he had none.

Kanahele, Ramos and Harris were earlier charged in connection with a fatal shooting that killed one man and wounded another Nov. 1 in Pearl City.
