HONOLULU (AP) - Deliberations are continuing in the trial of a federal agent charged with murder in a 2011 Waikiki shooting.

The jury is in its second day of deliberations after deliberating for a few hours on Thursday.

They are deciding whether State Department Christopher Deedy is guilty of second-degree murder after he shot and killed Kollin Elderts inside a McDonald's restaurant.

The 29-year-old agent from Arlington, Va. was in Honolulu to help with security for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. He was off-duty when he ended up at the fast-food eatery after bar-hopping with friends.

Deedy testified that he intervened because Elderts was harassing a customer. He claims he was protecting himself and others.

The prosecution claims Deedy was intoxicated and inexperienced.
