Suspect pleads not guilty to murder, attempted murder in deadly Waikiki shooting

A suspect in a deadly shooting in Waikiki has pleaded not guilty.

Jordan Smith, 18, was charged with second-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder, two counts of second-degree attempted murder, and four firearms offenses.

He officially entered his plea from Oahu Community Correctional Center on Thursday, Sept. 28. He remains in custody, unable to post $1 million bail.

Smith was one of three people arrested following a shooting in Waikiki that left one man dead and two others wounded Saturday morning, Sept. 16.

It happened at around 6 a.m. outside Club Alley Cat near the corner of Kuhio and Seaside avenues.

Maleko Remlinger, 22, of Kaneohe died from multiple gunshot wounds.

The following day, dozens of officers swarmed an apartment complex on Young Street near Punahou Street.

After several hours, Smith and two others were taken into custody.

Court documents reveal Smith was previously arrested and charged with third-degree assault for an incident that occurred on Sept. 14, also in the area of Club Alley Cats.

A witness statement connecting the two incidents helped officers identify and locate Smith.
