A state jury Thursday found Matthew K. Chung guilty as charged of second-degree attempted murder and using a firearm to commit the crime.

An Oahu grand jury indicted Chung in May 2014 in connection with a shooting in Kapolei in which a 23-year-old man suffered four gunshot wounds to his chest and arms.

The shooting happened near the intersection of Makakilo Drive and Anipeahi St.

“This was a difficult case to take to trial because all of the parties involved used ice,” Prosecuting Attorney Keith Kaneshiro said. “But it shows, once again, how dangerous this drug is and how much of a threat it continues to pose to public safety.”

On Dec. 9, 2015, Circuit Judge Dexter Del Rosario will sentence Chung to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
