Suspect in McCully game room murder appears in court


The suspect in an illegal game room shooting appeared in court Monday.

Nathaniel Foster, 26, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Kioco Melson, 24.

Court documents reveal more of the police investigation into the incident.

On Wednesday night, Nov. 23, officers found Melson’s body in a second-floor unit of a building near Beretania Street and Poha Lane in McCully. The unit was known as an illegal game room.

The medical examiner confirmed Melson died from multiple gunshot wounds.

According to court documents, witnesses told police Foster and Melson worked at the game room.

Documents claim the two were arguing when Foster, who the witnesses knew as “Jamaica,” “…pulled out a gun from a fanny pack on his wast. ‘Jamaica’ pointed the gun at Melson and shot him several times. ‘Jamaica’ walked over and stood directly over Melson while he lay on the ground, shot him several more times, and ran out the door.”

Police arrested Foster on Saturday, Nov. 26, in a Kalihi apartment.

His bail was confirmed at $1 million.
