A Navy submariner who was fatally shot through the locked front door at a frightened neighbor's house in 2018 "did not kick the door, bang on it, yell, or otherwise show aggressive behavior," according to a Navy "line of duty" investigation that found no misconduct.
Chief Petty Officer John E. Hasselbrink, 41, a fire control technician on the Pearl Harbor submarine USS Illinois, had consumed "at least" seven drinks prior to the April 15 shooting and had a blood alcohol level of 0.25 — three times the legal threshold for driving, the Navy report said.
Hasselbrink arrived by Uber at 3:30 a.m. that Sunday morning and attempted to enter the wrong townhouse 141 feet away from his own in Ewa Beach.

The woman's name was redacted in court documents, and it's the policy of the Lewiston Tribune not to identify alleged victims of sexual assault.
