Honolulu Police Lt. Dwight Rodrigues says the victim has been identified as 23-year-old Kollin Elderts, a resident of Windward Oahu.

Rodrigues says Elderts suffered a single gunshot wound.

Police say Deedy was arrested a short distance from the restaurant.

It was unclear whether the victim and suspect new each other.The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported he is a special agent with the U.S. State Department.

It remained unclear whether the two men knew each other.
