A 39-year-old Kailua-Kona man has been charged with terroristic threatening, two counts of reckless endangering and six other offenses for allegedly firing shots in his apartment and into the air Saturday in the parking lot of a Kailua-Kona resort.

Police said Raymond Lee Robinson was still seated in a rental car in the parking lot when officers arrived shortly after noon.

As they approached Robinson, he fired numerous shots into the air and made verbal threats against the officers.

He was arrested shortly thereafter.

No one was reported injured from the gunshots and there were no reports of damage.

Police said they later learned that just prior to the incident, shots were reportedly fired at Robinson’s residence located off Kakahiaka Road in Kailua. No injuries at or around his residence were reported.

Search warrants executed at Robinson’s apartment allegedly resulted in the seizure of two handguns, a rifle and ammunition. Two more handguns, a rifle and ammunition were reported found in the vehicle.

Spent ammunition casings were found around the vehicle and in Robinson’s apartment, which allegedly had gunshot damage inside.

Other charges filed against Robinson include criminal property damage, having a loaded firearm on a highway and four other firearms offenses.

Robinson’s bail was set at $123,000.
