Doctor says agent not obviously drunk after shooting

HONOLULU (AP) - An emergency room doctor who examined a federal agent after a fatal shooting in Waikiki said he didn't seem drunk.

Prosecutors in the murder trial against State Department Special Agent Christopher Deedy have been trying to show that he was drunk when he shot and killed a Kailua man inside a McDonald's restaurant in 2011.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that Queen's Medical Center Dr. Kyle Perry testified that he didn't have any reason to believe Deedy was intoxicated while examining him after the early-morning shooting. Perry noted that Deedy had normal coordination and was speaking full sentences.

Deedy claims he was sober and acted in self-defense.

The jury has heard from police officers and other witnesses who said Deedy appeared drunk.

The trial resumes Monday.
