CHICAGO (AP) — Jury selection is set to resume Tuesday for the murder trial of Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke, who shot black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times in 2014.
Three women and two men have been picked so far for the jury.
The women are a Hispanic mother of three who said she respects police officers, a white woman who said she wanted to see evidence before forming an opinion, and a white woman who said she saw the video of the shooting but hadn’t made up her mind.
The two men selected are an Asian-American financial analyst who said on his questionnaire that everyone must abide by the law, and a white man who is gay and said he didn’t know much about the case.
Ten prospective jurors were rejected after saying they could not be fair to Van Dyke.
