ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A trial is set to begin in Fulton County Superior Court for the man accused of fatally shooting a woman and wounding two others in an Atlanta parking garage.

Fulton County District Attorney’s spokeswoman Yvette Jones said jury selection was beginning Monday for 23-year-old Nkosi Thandiwe, a former security guard who was arrested in the July 2011 shootings in Midtown Atlanta.

Authorities have said 26-year-old Brittany Watts was fatally shot in her neck and Thandiwe fled the scene in the woman’s car. Officials say Thandiwe shot at two other women before leaving the garage, wounding one in her torso and another in her calf. Both women survived the shooting, but one was left paralyzed.
