Ala Moana murder suspect turns himself into police custody

News

After five days on the run, the man wanted for the murder of a 20-year old man in a shooting at Ala Moana Center Christmas night turned himself in to the Honolulu police main station Friday morning.

Dae Han Moon, 20, was wanted for Murder in the Second Degree for the death of Stevie Feliciano, who died Wednesday, Dec. 28, at the hospital after being taken off life support as decided by his family.

On the night of Dec. 25, two groups, involving Moon and Feliciano, got into an argument in the parking structure in the Ewa wing of the Ala Moana Shopping Center.

The argument escalated and Moon allegedly retrieved a firearm from his vehicle and shot Feliciano in the back of the head. Moon and his friends fled the scene prior to the arrival of police.

Prior to Moon’s arrest, another arrest was made in relation to the shooting when 21-year-old William Kan was taken into police custody Wednesday for hindering prosecution.

And Crimestoppers and the HPD released word late Friday afternoon that police are looking for another person of interest in this case. Lance Bermudez is wanted for a $500,000 Warrant of Arrest for Hindering Prosecution in the First Degree. He is 25 years of age, 5-foot-9, 150 to 160 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.

Police say both Kan and Bermudez threatened a witness to the shooting.

Moon was also arrested for auto theft and four firearm offenses related to the case. He was indicted by a grand jury Thursday and his bail has been set at $2 million.

We spoke to Moon’s attorney Alen Kaneshiro at his office Friday afternoon. He told us he doesn’t make statements regarding his clients, but as there are two sides to every story, Kaneshiro did offer this: “It’s not what it appears.”

We also went to the courthouse to check on the grand jury indictment that was handed down Thursday and found the state is also taking into account Moon’s criminal past.

In a separate run-in earlier this month, police say Moon led them on a car chase that ended on Kaheka Street near Don Quijote. Moon reportedly almost ran into a security guard’s car before hitting a police car.

A weapon was found in Moon’s car. Moon was charged for firearms violations and auto theft, but was released on bail pending a court date.

When we last spoke with Stevie Feliciano’s family, their pain was mixed with questions they want Moon to answer.

“(Stevie) didn’t deserve that,” said his sister Diana, “and we want to know answers — why he did it and why, why on Christmas?”
