The Honolulu Star-Advertiser - A U.S. State Department law enforcement agent from the Mainland was arrested early Saturday, Nov. 5, on suspicion of fatally shooting a Windward O'ahu man at the Kuhio Avenue McDonald's in Waikiki.
Honolulu police identified the alleged shooter as 27-year-old Christopher W. Deedy, and sources who asked to remain anonymous confirmed that he is a federal agent who was off-duty at the time of the incident. The victim was identified as 23-year-old Kollin K. Elderts.
State Department officials refused to confirm that Deedy was here in connection with the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) conference, but his LinkedIn Webpage identifies him as a special agent working in the Washington, D.C., area for the department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security. According to the department's Website, the bureau is responsible for providing a safe and secure environment for the conduct of U.S. foreign policy.
