WAILUKU — A man has been indicted on felony charges in connection with a standoff that continued for several hours at a Kahului condominium complex last month.
During his arraignment March 11 in 2nd Circuit Court, Kadon Zimmerman pleaded not guilty to the charges of first-degree terroristic threatening, first-degree reckless endangering, two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and being a felon in possession of ammunition.
Police said one shot was fired before the 30-year-old surrendered shortly after midnight to end the standoff that began when police officers went to the Harbor Lights complex at 4:45 p.m. Feb. 25 to arrest Zimmerman.
He was wanted on a no-bail warrant for violating his parole.
After seeing the officers, Zimmerman ran into a unit where he had been staying and refused to leave, police said. Zimmerman, who was alone in the unit, had a shotgun and .22-caliber pistol, police said.
One shot was heard at 5:23 p.m.
About 100 residents were evacuated from Building D of the complex, and nearby streets were closed to traffic during part of the standoff.
Police said no one was injured. Police negotiators persuaded Zimmerman to turn over the shotgun and the handgun before he surrendered shortly after midnight.
A May 12 trial is scheduled for Zimmerman before 2nd Circuit Judge Richard Bissen.
Zimmerman is being held in lieu of $600,000 bail at the Maui Community Correctional Center.
Zimmerman was sentenced to a five-year prison term for a felony abuse conviction in May 2004 and been released on parole Oct. 3, officials said.
