OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The trial of a Del City police captain charged in the shooting death of an unarmed teenager is set to begin with jury selection.

Jury selection is to start Monday in Oklahoma County District Court for 48-year-old Capt. Randy Harrison. Harrison is a 23-year-veteran of the Del City Police Department and has pleaded not guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the March 14, 2012, death of 18-year-old Dane Scott Jr.

An affidavit filed by police says Harrison was trying to arrest Scott after a car chase and took a handgun from the teen. As Scott ran away, Harrison fired four times with the fourth shot striking Scott in the back.

The affidavit says Scott was unarmed and was posing no threat of death or great bodily harm.
