Stadium shooting trial near deliberations

Posted: Wednesday, December 17, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A prosecutor gave his closing argument in the trial of two men accused of firing shots across the Anchorage Football Stadium.

A man was seriously injured and dozens of others put in danger in the incident two and a half years ago.

The prosecution ended its case Monday against Clayton Nai and Norman Fagafaga and their attorneys chose not to call witnesses.

No weapons were recovered in the incident.

Prosecutor John Novak says Fagafaga and Nai went to the stadium to settle a score with other gang members.

But Fagafaga attorney Shelley Chaffin says witnesses were influenced by hearsay and pressure from Samoan elders upset about the violence.

The jury was expected to receive the case Tuesday afternoon or this morning.
