At 10:28 a.m. Thursday (May 22), detectives arrested 46-year-old Paul Gibson of Ocean View in Hilo District Court.

Gibson, who was free on $374,000 bail, had appeared in court for the continuation of a preliminary hearing to determine if prosecutors had enough evidence to take him to trial. The preliminary hearing was no longer necessary because a Grand Jury indicted Gibson on Wednesday for attempted second-degree murder, third-degree assault, two counts of terroristic threatening, five firearms offenses and resisting an order to stop.

His bail was increased to $700,00. He is being held at the Hilo police cellblock until his arraignment Friday (May 23).
