Prosecutors charged a 54-year-old Mililani man yesterday with second- degree attempted murder for allegedly shooting his 45-year-old next-door neighbor multiple times with a revolver.

Police said the suspect, Michael J. Graham, had a long-standing dispute with his neighbor over noise. Police and neighbors identified the neighbor as Jerome Cristobal.

Graham also was charged with four counts of first-degree terroristic threatening for allegedly firing the gun at his neighbor’s three children and Cristobal’s daughter’s boyfriend.

Graham was also charged with use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a firearm to commit a felony. His bail was set at $150,000.

Police said Cristobal was covering a generator in his backyard about 9:45 p.m. Sunday at his 94-235 Kaholo St. house.

When his son went outside to ask his father for a cigarette, he heard a loud pop, saw his father fall to the ground and began screaming for help, a police affidavit said.
