We're back in the Johnson County Courthouse.
Testimony should begin again around 9.
First witness will be DiMarco Harris.
Harris is a bit soft spoken.
Harris said Donelle was like a brother to him, the best friend he could ever have.
Harris and Donelle spent the day of the shooting together - eating food, listening to music, playing video games.
Donelle left and came back several times while they were hanging out - usually for 5-10 minutes - once for about 30.
That night, while Donelle was waiting for a ride home and DiMarco was waiting for him, Brandon Brown and Byron Fisher walked up.
DiMarco said he'd never met Brown before.
DiMarco said Brown said to Lindsey "Let me holler at you."
Brown and Lindsey then walked off together to the side of the building.
Byron and DiMarco were talking. Byron, at some point, turns to Brown and Lindsey and says "Y'all better knock that (crap) off." At that point, according to DiMarco, Brown pulled a gun on Lindsey and shot him four times.
Brown then ran on foot and Donelle ran over to Byron and DiMarco.
Byron took off running, as well, DiMarco says.
Sissel will now cross-examine Harris.
Sissel is beginning his questioning with Harris' interview with police.
Harris says he positively ID'd Brown in a photo lineup, Sissel asks him if he's sure he ID'd Brown. Harris said he's sure. We're going to the video now.
Video shows Harris with an Iowa City Police officer, reviewing a print out of a photo line up.
Harris is saying something about the photos, but I can't make it out.
Harris points out two photos that he says look like the shooter.
Sissel and Harris argued over whether Harris was convicted in May 2008 to giving false reports to police. Harris says he wasn't.
Sissel questioning Harris about the events of the day and how many times Donelle left and came back.
He wants to know if anyone was with Harris and Lindsey when Lindsey was waiting for a ride. Harris said another resident of the complex, Toring, wasn't there. A video that's about to be played of Harris' interview with police may suggest otherwise.
Questioning now on how intoxicated Harris was. Harris said he was a "little tipsy" but not drunk out of his mind. He also denies buying any beer - only some Hennessey - but we have some security video now showing him buying beer (I think, the video is very small).
Harris denies buying a six pack with Donelle. He is asked for his ID. He asks to see the video again.
Harris admits to buying the six pack.
There were two or three bottles of Hennessey purchased that day, as well.
Harris says he doesn't remember what Brown was wearing. He says Brown never left the group and he never heard a dispute between Brown and Lindsey.
Harris tears up on the stand. He says the Lindsey family blamed him for what happened to Donelle. He says it wasn't his fault and he'll deal with it. Someone in the gallery just stood up and said "You left Donelle to die."
She's been escorted out of the courtroom.
Sissel says someone slipped a photo of Donelle under DiMarco's door after the shooting. DiMarco doesn't know what was meant by the photo or who slipped it under the door.
Christiansen questioning again, trying to clarify how much alcohol was consumed. First bottle was half a pint, second bottle was a pint and the last bottle was a fifth. That last bottle was shared.
We're back. State is calling Johnny Platt, a U. Heights reserve officer.
Former reserve officer. Full-time dispatcher.
Platt was the first on the scene of the shooting. He was unable to detect a pulse or breathing from Lindsey.
He did 4.5 to 5 minutes of CPR. When paramedics showed up, he helped secure the scene and stayed for a couple of hours. Didn't interview anyone.
Hradek is now doing cross-examination. She is asking about the large police presence (about 20 squad cars) and neighbors coming out.
Platt says about a dozen area residents were out there.
Platt is dismissed. Detective Bob Hartman is taking the stand.
He is a crime scene technician.
With the Iowa City Police Department.
