More than 500 people have signed a petition to U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service to fire Christopher Deedy, a federal agent accused of murdering a Native Hawaiian man three years ago. 

The petition on also asks for reparations for the family of the victim, Kollin Elderts.

Deedy shot Elderts in a McDonald’s in Honolulu late at night on Nov. 5, 2011. Deedy said he was acting in self-defense.

Deedy was tried for second-degree murder last year but the highly publicized trial ended in a hung jury.

The incident highlighted racial tensions between whites and Native Hawaiians in Hawaii.
