WILMINGTON, Delaware — Jury selection is getting underway in a trial stemming from a soccer tournament shooting in Wilmington that left three people dead.

Thirty-eight-year-old Otis Phillips and 23-year-old Jeffery Phillips, who are not related, were both indicted on two counts of first-degree murder following the July 2012 shootings at Eden Park.

The tournament organizer, 47-year-old Herman Curry, and 16-year-old soccer player Alexander Kamara Jr. were killed.

A third suspect, 43-year-old Sheldon Ogle, was killed after armed spectators at the match returned fire.

Authorities have said Curry may have been targeted because he witnessed a fatal shooting in 2008 for with Otis Phillips was indicted.

The soccer park shootings later led to the indictment of 10 people, including Otis and Jeffery Phillips on charges of participating in gang activity.
