Those witnesses included police officers, medical examiners and the two teenagers inside the car with Bobby Moore at the time of the shooting.
Shortly after the defense rested Wednesday morning, the prosecution and defense teams gave closing statements and the jury began deliberations at noon.
The jury is responsible for considering verdicts of guilty of negligent homicide, guilty of manslaughter or not guilty of any form of homicide.
