Jurors heard from an Albuquerque Police officer who responded to the shooting. He described a chaotic scene with a lot of bystanders. He says he also found people trying to help Weller after he was shot. “He was not breathing and was not conscious at the time,” Ofc. Jonathan Sanchez said.

The trial was expected to continue through next week.
