Navy identifies man killed in shooting at Ewa Beach home

HONOLULU (AP) — The Navy has identified a man who was killed in a shooting Sunday at an Ewa Beach home.

The Navy said 41-year-old Chief Petty Officer John Ellsworth Hasselbrink, a submariner who served 22 years at Pearl Harbor, was killed in the shooting.

Police reports say Hasselbrink was shot while trying to open the door of a 33-year-old Ewa Beach resident’s house in the middle of the night.

The resident was arrested but released Monday night without charges, pending further investigation.

The U.S. Pacific Fleet submarine force, citing police reports, said Hasselbrink had been attempting “to enter a residence other than his own by mistake.”

Hasselbrink, a California native, was assigned to the Virginia-class submarine USS Illinois. He died at the scene.
