HONOLULU (AP) — A Hawaii jury says it is at an impasse in trying to determine whether a federal agent is guilty of murder after shooting and killing a man at a Waikiki McDonald's in 2011.
Judge Karen Ahn read a letter from jurors in court Monday saying they could not reach a verdict in the trial for State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy. They began deliberating Aug. 15.
Deedy is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Kollin Elderts.
Deedy has maintained he was acting in self-defense and protecting others when he shot and killed Elderts in the McDonald's restaurant while off-duty. The prosecution has claimed Deedy was intoxicated and inexperienced.
The 29-year-old agent from Arlington, Va., was in Honolulu to help with security for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
