    A federal agent from the Washington region is accused of killing a man at a McDonalds in Honolulu, HI.

    A federal agent on assignment in Hawaii is now charged with murder after a late night shooting at a McDonald's there.
     
    Christopher Deedy, age 27, of Arlington was assigned as a special agent with the State Department in Waikiki.  He was arrested early Saturday morning, after police say he shot a man at a McDonald's fast food restaurant.

    Investigators say four men were involved in a confrontation at the restaurant.  Investigators say 23-year-old Colin Elderts was shot in the chest and killed.

    Residents say fights often start at a nearby club.

    Deedy was in Hawaii as part of an advance security team for the Asia Pacific Cooperation Summit which starts Tuesday.

    President Obama was expected to attend.

    Special Agent Deedy was off-duty at the time, and has been placed on administrative leave.  On Monday morning, he was released on $250,000 bail.
