What started out as an evening of fun with friends, ended with the fatal shooting of Kollin Elderts.
On Thursday, Elderts’ friend Shane Medeiros testified in the Christopher Deedy murder trial.
Medeiros told jurors that he and Elderts had been laughing and joking with the cashiers and customers at a Waikiki McDonald’s when Deedy intervened.
Words were then exchanged.
Medeiros testified Deedy said, “acting like that could get you shot.”
“Me and Kollin kind of looked at each other like, ‘What?’ And that’s when Kollin looked up at him and said ‘Are you going to shoot me?’ And he said, ‘Oh, you feel like getting shot? You wanna get shot?’ He just said it multiple times,” Medeiros said.
The confrontation escalated into a fist fight, then the fatal shooting of Elderts.
The trial resumes Monday when Medeiros will once again take the stand.
