Jennings lived with Tacadena in Maili and worked at Y. Hata and Company. She says he graduated from Mililani High School in 2017.

“He was always helpful. whatever you need he would do it so he has an imprint here,” said neighbor Treena Apostadiro. “I’m shocked because somebody with a kind and loving heart, I can’t imagine his life being taken so short. There’s so much promise in front of him.”

The family is piecing together exactly what happened. All Tacadena knows is that her son was shot in the chest.

“I just have to wrap myself around what just happened I think I’m going to wake up any minute now and this is all a bad dream,” said Tacadena.
