HILO, Hawaii (AP) - A Hawaii man says he was "afraid for his life" when a neighbor pointed a gun at him and fired at least two shots into the air in a mandatory evacuation zone near the erupting Kilauea volcano. The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports 36-year-old Ethan Edwards testified in a Hilo courtroom last week in the preliminary hearing for 61-year-old John Hubbard. Hubbard was arrested and charged with reckless endangering, terroristic threatening and other charges in state court. U.S. prosecutors have also charged him with being a felon in possession of a firearm. A cellphone video captured the encounter in Leilani Estates, where lava has been flowing.
