The man who shot a Houston police officer from the back of a patrol car is heading to trial. Juan Quintero is accused of killing HPD Officer Rodney Johnson. Potential jurors were questioned yesterday and the trial should start in a few weeks, once jury selection is done.

Quintero was in the back of Johnson's squad car when he managed to pull out a pistol overlooked in a search and shoot Johnson four times.
