Man shot and killed at Waikiki restaurant, allegedly by federal agent, had alcohol in system
HONOLULU (AP) ' The Honolulu medical examiner's office says the man a federal agent allegedly shot and killed inside a McDonald's restaurant had alcohol in his system.
The office said Wednesday that Kollin Elderts' blood-alcohol level was 0.12 percent, based on blood drawn during an autopsy. A preliminary toxicology screen detected another substance but a blood sample is being sent to a mainland lab for further testing.
The 23-year-old Kailua man was shot in the chest Saturday during an altercation at the Waikiki McDonald's. State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy is charged with second-degree murder and was released after posting $250,000 bail.
Police would not comment on whether an alcohol test was administered on the 27-year-old agent. He was in town to help with security at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting.
