Deliberations are set to begin Tuesday in the trial of the man accused of killing two people and shooting a Rochester Police sergeant.

Ralph Strong Jr. faces murder and assault charges.

Police say he shot and killed two men outside a nightclub on Central Avenue last June. Then days later, he is accused of shooting a Rochester Police sergeant who tried to pull him over.

On Monday, Strong testified and told the jury about what it felt like to get shot by police. Then he talked about how he shot back at the sergeant.

Lawyers also gave their closing arguments late Monday afternoon.
