Jury selection will begin this afternoon in Judge Jack Skeen's courtroom in the trial of Dennis Bendy, one of the defendants facing charges in the June 2013 fatal shooting of Briana Raquel Young at P.T. Cole Park.

Tyler Police say the 20-year-old Young was killed when she and her three-year-old son were caught in crossfire in at the park. Gunfire broke out at the park when two men exchanged fire with a car on Mockingbird Street.

Two other defendants facing murder charges will go to trial later.
