All jurors have been seated in the trial of a man accused of shooting two people to death outside a nightclub last year.

The same man is also accused of injuring a Rochester police officer.

Testimony has begun in the case of Ralph Strong Junior. Police say he shot and killed 31-year-old Jahmia Singleton and 27-year-old Reggie Johnson outside a Central Avenue nightclub last June.

Days later, prosecutors say Strong fired at a Rochester police sergeant who attempted to stop him at North Goodman and Norton Streets.
