A trial is set to begin Wednesday in Mercer County for a Campbell man arrested in connection with a homicide in Farrell.

Darrell Daurice Harrison Jr., 28, is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Jayson Burns, 21, of Sharon, in April of last year.

Police say Harrison Jr. shot Burns along Roemer Avenue in Farrell. Burns later died at a hospital.

Harrison fled to Nebraska where local authorities arrested him.

Police say that during a fight with three men, Harrison pulled out a gun and shot Burns.

According to an affidavit, witnesses told police that Burns was shot while trying to escape while being assaulted on the ground.

Pennsylvania State Police troopers collected surveillance video from a nearby business that captured the attack.
