You haven't provided enough information, but the answer is probably no. Your boyfriend needs a good defense attorney right away.
The prosecutors likely have a lot more evidence than you've listed. But even if all they have is one eyewitness who recognizes him, and even if the other witnesses have nothing useful to say (there are probably other things they can testify about), there's a good chance he will remain behind bars for a very, very long time.
This is a much more complicated situation than can be answered on a quick post such as this. And way too many variables to give any kind of decent assessment to answer your question. But if there are three attempted murder charges he was just picked up on, unlikely he would be released any time soon based on Own Recognizance. I would highly recommend that you speak to a Criminal defense attorney in more detail about the situation. There also may be other evidence on top of the witness that would be considered.
