Jon Rapozo sat in court on Thursday, waiting to hear the list of charges against him. Fourteen of them in all including owning an illegal automatic weapon, driving a stolen vehicle and murder in the second degree. Rapozo has been convicted of 28 charges since 1989.

Court documents say Rapozo allegedly shot at John Stancil this past Monday near Iana street in Kailua.

Stancil has been in recent news stories as one of the men involved in two separate beating cases. One of them involved an NFL Pro Bowl player back in January.
Stancil reportedly told police he had driven his truck to Kailua to meet with another man at around 4:30 am. That's when he says Rapozo pulled up next to them in a stolen car.

Court documents say Rapozo got out of the car and was introduced to Stancil. Rapozo drove off after Stancil asked to have a private conversation with the other man.

And that's when things appeared to escalate. According to the documents, just moments later Stancil saw Rapozo speeding back to the area. He got in his truck and then saw Rapozo coming closer holding something wrapped up in his hand.

Stancil started to drive away but his windshield was hit and shattered by a bullet that missed his shoulder by just a foot. Court documents say he then called his brother Michael Miske, another one of the men allegedly involved in January's high profile brawl.

Miske met Stancil at the Kailua Police Station and helped his brother identify Rapozo to police. Rapozo was arrested near Kaneohe Bay Drive several hours later.

Rapozo's preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 pm Tuesday. His bail is set at $500,000.
