HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Another Honolulu police officer, high in the ranks, has retired while being examined for his role in a federal public corruption case.

Police Maj. Gordon Shiraishi retired Thursday after 33 years with the Honolulu Police Department.

Shiraishi was under investigation for his relation to the Kealoha corruption scandal.

In December, Shiraishi received an FBI target letter and had his police powers removed in December.

Shiraishi is considered a co-conspirator in the case that also forced the retirement of HPD Chief Louis Kealoha.
