Jury selection set in fatal 2014 Bourbon Street gunfight

A trial is scheduled to begin in New Orleans for the only person arrested following a 2014 gunfight on Bourbon Street that left a bystander dead and nine others hurt.

Jury selection is expected to begin Monday in the case of Trung Le (Lee), who was captured a few days after the June 29, 2014, shooting.

Le's lawyer has said the 22-year-old fired in self-defense to save himself and others from another, still unidentified gunman.

Le faces charges of manslaughter and attempted second-degree murder.

The shooting happened at 2:45 a.m. on a Sunday morning on Bourbon, the famous street of nightclubs and restaurants in the French Quarter.

A woman visiting New Orleans from Hammond, Louisiana, was killed. The wounded included visitors from Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Australia, according to AP. - Idrak
