EWA BEACH, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu police charged Ewa Beach resident Gregory Farr with manslaughter on Tuesday in connection with a fatal shooting at his Ewa Beach home.

On April 15, police were called when several people in a residential neighborhood heard shots fired around 3:15 a.m. Police say the victim, 41-year-old John Hasselbrink, was attempting to open the front door of the suspect's home on Kaileolea Drive when Farr opened fire. 

Hasselbrink, a chief petty officer who served in the Navy at Pearl Harbor for 22 years, died at the scene. Hasselbrink lived in the neighborhood, and was believed to have accidentally attempted to open the door to the wrong home.

On Tuesday, police charged Farr with manslaughter, and prosecutors also charged him for having an unregistered firearm.
