NORWICH, N.Y. (AP) - A retired New York City police officer is going on trial in an upstate courtroom for a 2014 shooting that killed a 26-year-old man and wounded the victim’s father.

Authorities say 57-year-old John Guzy killed Derek Prindle and wounded his then-60-year-old father in the parking lot outside a gym in the Chenango County town of Bainbridge.

Police say Guzy and the Prindles were involved in a traffic dispute while driving on Route 7 in October 2014. Officials say Guzy shot both men after they pulled over and got out of their vehicle.

Guzy was a Chenango County corrections officer at the time of the shooting. He worked for the NYPD for 20 years.

A county court judge is scheduled to begin hear opening statements Monday. Guzy has waived his right to a jury trial.
