Puna man charged with multiple offenses in Panaewa shooting

By 67AM KPUA News

Big Island police have charged a 72-year-old Puna man in connection with a shooting Sunday evening (May 13) at a home in Panaewa.

Joseph Amormino of Hawaiian Beaches was charged at 3:23 p.m. Tuesday (May 15) with first-degree attempted murder, two counts of second-degree attempted murder, burglary, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, place to keep ammunition, and two counts of place to keep firearms.

He was also charged with three counts of terroristic threatening for an unrelated incident that occurred about twenty minutes before the shooting. In that case, Amormino allegedly waved a handgun at a 52-year-old Mountain View woman, a 48-year-old Mountain View man and a 14-year-old Mountain View girl after reportedly tailgating their vehicle on Highway 130 near the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision.

Amormino's bail was set at $656,000. He remains at the Hilo police cellblock pending his initial court appearance scheduled for Wednesday (May 16).
