TYLER (KYTX) - Prosecutors in the trial of Ricky Neal on murder charges have called to the stand the pathologist who performed the autopsy on Chris Mass. The pathologist says Mass had four gunshot wounds -- one to the face, one to the neck and two to the chest -- that were sustained in a shooting last year at the Broadway Square Mall.

Earlier today, the prosecution called Tamara Norris to the stand. Norris is Ricky Neal's girlfriend of four years, and was with him on the morning of the shooting. She detailed what she saw in the parking lot leading up to the shooting.The second witness to take the stand today was Dr. Jeffery Hunter, an ophthalmologist who was near the mall when he heard shots fired.He says he ran over to see Chris Mass's body laying on the ground with a pool of blood next to his head.Dr. Hunter says he searched Mass's body and found a gunshot wound to the left side of his chest "basically over his heart."He gave CPR for about two minutes before he says he confirmed that Mass was dead.
