Federal agent, 27, arrested following fatal shooting at Waikiki McDonald's
HONOLULU (AP) ' Authorities say a federal agent has been charged in a fatal shooting at a McDonald's in Hawaii.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://bit.ly/uI5TQZ) reported Sunday night that 27-year-old Christopher Deedy has been charged with second-degree murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony. Bail was set at $250,000.
Honolulu Police Lt. Dwight Rodrigues says the victim has been identified as 23-year-old Kollin Elderts, a resident of Windward Oahu.
The shooting early Saturday in Waikiki comes as security is ramped up in the area ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, which starts Tuesday. It was unclear whether Deedy was in Hawaii for APEC.
Rodrigues says Elderts suffered a single gunshot wound.
It was unclear whether the victim and suspect new each other.
Police say Deedy was arrested a short distance from the restaurant. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported he is a special agent with the U.S. State Department.
It remained unclear whether the two men knew each other.
