AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Jury selection has begun in the trial of a Maine man charged in a fatal shooting in a Walmart parking lot.

Gage Dalphonse is accused of shooting a Turner man twice in the back on July 27, 2019, at the Walmart after a brief verbal exchange in a parking lot.

Police said Dalphonse leaned out the driver’s side window of his car and shot Jean Fournier, of Turner.

Dalphonse’s attorney contends he fired his weapon in self-defense.
