Jury questionnaires will be first, and records show that two questionnaires have been approved by both sides of the case.

Shelby is charged with first-degree manslaughter in the 2016 shooting death of Terence Crutcher. The district attorney has said Shelby overreacted in the heat of the moment.

Shelby's attorney said Crutcher was shot after he reached into a vehicle. 

A few groups, Aware Tulsa and Black Lives Matter Tulsa, are asking people on Facebook to show up at the courthouse Monday.

City crews closed 5th Street at Denver in front of the courthouse Monday morning and blocked off the area with concrete barriers. 

Shelby's trial is expected to last about two weeks.
