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.
BALBOA PARK — A man who drove past a gate at Naval Medical Center San Diego was injured Monday night when security officers fired at the man's charging dog and missed, grazing the man in the ankle instead, a Navy spokesman said.
The shooting occurred around 8:45 p.m. near the Naval hospital's main gate at Bob Wilson Drive off Florida Drive, Navy Region Southwest spokesman Brian O'Rourke said.
The man apparently drove up to the entrance, and instead of stopping for the guards, continued driving, O'Rourke said. The guards deployed a barrier that stopped the vehicle, the man got out and some sort of altercation ensued.
