PUPUKEA (KHNL) - "I was just about to lie down and get comfortable and then we heard gunshots...tuk, tuk, tuk, tuk" said Melissa Dabin.

Police were called just before midnight Saturday night to this home on Oahu's north shore after receiving a report of shots being fired.

Dabin said "We was scared so we kinda of ducked down and we was telling everyone duck down, duck down and you could hear people yelling and screaming. A lot of dirt and smoke in the middle part of the road over there".

When emergency personnel arrived, they found 31-year old Dillon Ching with 2 gunshot wounds.

Dabin said she was terrified. "He just came home from his in-laws house...passed his son to his wife and that's when he got shot. When he got shot he slumped over and reached for his wife. They laid him right by the walkway and he was bleeding and they was trying to keep him alive by talking to him and telling him to breathe...keep breathing"

Ching was rushed to Wahiawa General Hospital in critical condition where he later died. Today friends and family remembered a loving husband and father.

William Ching said "What he did when he got shot was protecting his children. He was protecting his children and his wife. You know they are so immature that's so stupid. That's not right you know"
