DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit firefighter will stand trial in the slaying of a disc jockey during a shootout outside a west side bar.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 35-year-old Terrill Hardaway was bound over Tuesday to circuit court.

Hardaway is charged with second-degree murder and using a firearm during a felony. He is scheduled for arraignment on April 29.

Prosecutor Kym Worthy has said Hardaway entered the bar on Dec. 29, 2012, and got into a fight with 41-year-old Tony Jackson.

Security guards took the men outside where the fight continued. Worthy said both pulled handguns and started shooting.

Jackson was hit with more than one slug and was pronounced dead at a hospital. Hardaway was shot in the shoulder.
