Jury selection set to begin in trial of accused courthouse shooter

Posted:
GALVESTON -

Tuesday will mark the beginning of the jury selection for accused Jefferson County Courthouse Shooter Bartholomew Granger.

Granger is accused of opening fire at the court house in March 2012 during the break of a sexual abuse case.

Minnie Seabolt was visiting the courthouse the day of the shooting.  She was killed.  Three others were injured.

The trial has been moved to Galveston to avoid jurors walking through the crime scene.

A spokesperson for the Jefferson County District Attorney's office told 12News they will seek the death penalty.
