      Jury set in South Capitol Street murder case

      WASHINGTON (AP) - Opening statements are scheduled for next week in the trial of five men charged in a series of 2010 shootings in D.C. that left five people dead.

      The Washington Post reports that a jury was seated on Thursday (http://wapo.st/y1tQFA).

      Four of the men - 22-year-old Orlando Carter, 23-year-old Robert Bost, 23-year-old Jeffrey Best and 23-year-old Lamar Williams - are each charged in a drive-by attack that killed three and wounded six in one of the city's worst shootings in nearly two decades.

      Carter, and his brother 21-year-old Saquan Carter, are charged along with Best and Williams in the shooting death of 20-year-old Jordan Howe on March 22, 2010.

      Prosecutors say the three people killed in the drive-by attack on March 30, 2010, were at Howe's funeral earlier that day.
