On Monday afternoon, detectives charged 46-year-old Paul Gibson of Ocean View with attempted second-degree murder, third-degree assault, two counts of terroristic threatening, five firearms offenses, resisting an order to stop and failure to provide a DNA sample.
His bail was set at $374,000. He remains at the Hilo police cellblock pending his initial court appearance scheduled for Tuesday.

Gibson was arrested minutes later on Laukapu Street in Hilo.
