Jury selection got underway Monday for Randall "Wes" Kerrick, the former CMPD police officer accused of shooting and killing an unarmed black man nearly two years ago. Kerrick, who is white, shot and killed 24-year-old Jonathan Ferrell when he and two other officers responded to a 911 call. Superior Court Judge Robert Ervin ruled that video cameras, audio recordings, and photography will be allowed during this week's pre-trial motions. Judge Ervin has not determined if they will be allowed during the trial. No video, audio or pictures of jurors will be permitted.
