WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - The trial of a man accused of shooting to death an 18-year-old in 2013 is underway in Waterloo.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1CxGWOY ) that testimony began Wednesday in the case against 24-year-old Perquondis Holmes, who is charged with first-degree murder and two other crimes. He was arrested in connection with the November 2013 slaying of DaeQuan Campbell.

Authorities say Campbell died of gunshot wounds after a car he was driving hit a garage. They say Holmes had fired shots and fled the scene.

Tamaris Gary, a friend of Campbell, says he was in the car with Campbell when they began following a Ford Mustang to a parking lot, where a person appeared outside the car and began firing.

Gary identified Holmes as the shooter during his testimony.
