OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A witness to the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager by a Del City police captain is scheduled to resume his testimony in the captain’s manslaughter trial.

Capt. Randy Harrison is charged with first-degree manslaughter in the March 14, 2012, death of 18-year-old Dane Scott Jr. Harrison has pleaded not guilty and faces a minimum of four years and a maximum of life in prison if convicted.

A friend of Scott’s, 17-year-old John Lockett, testified Tuesday on the first day of testimony and is scheduled to continue his testimony Wednesday.

Lockett says Scott led Harrison on a high-speed chase that ended in a collision. Lockett says Scott and Harrison scuffled before Scott wriggled free. He says Scott was running away when Harrison opened fire.
