LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Opening statements started Tuesday in the retrial of a former Little Rock police officer.
Joshua Hastings is charged with manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Bobby Moore.
The first witness of the day was a sergeant who responded to the scene the morning of the shooting. After him, several other officials with the Little Rock Police Department testified, as well as scientists from the State Crime Lab and a medical examiner.
Two of the crucial witnesses also took the stand Tuesday- both juveniles who were in the car with Moore when he was shot and killed. Most of the questions directed to the two of them had to do with which direction the car was going when Hastings fired his weapon.
