ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A federal judge has set the date for the trial for an ex-convict charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm that authorities say was used in the shooting death of an Albuquerque police officer.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the trial of Davon Lymon will begin Oct. 24 in Albuquerque.

The trial originally was scheduled for Aug. 3 in Las Cruces, but the judge postponed it in response to defense concerns about publicity surrounding the fatal shootings of officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Lymon was transferred to federal custody after his October arrest in the shooting of Officer Daniel Webster. He has not been charged in Webster’s death but remains under investigation in the shooting.

Police say Webster pulled over Lymon for driving a motorcycle with a stolen license plate.
