HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The jury is ready to hear the murder case of Nasser Hamad, who is charged with killing two people and injuring three in a shooting outside of his Howland home in February.

On Friday, jurors got a look at the crime scene and the van involved in the crime. The 12 jurors and four alternates were seated Thursday.

Dozens of Howland Police were on the scene in marked and unmarked vehicles. They blocked traffic several times as the jury was shown the house along Rt. 46 from different angles.

They were then brought inside the house as dozens of police watched.

Hamad said he shot the five in self-defense but prosecutors say he coaxed the victims to come to his home when an ongoing fight on Facebook turned physical.

Testimony starts Monday morning.

Hamad could get the death penalty if the jury finds him guilty.
