Jury selection continues this morning in the murder trial of Lorenzo Gonzalez.

Gonzalez is accused of killing 18-year-old Carlos Romero one year ago on Pueblo's east side.

According to court reports, Romero was playing poker with friends in a garage when Gonzalez may have overheard them making derogatory remarks about the gang he is a part of. Gonzalez retaliated by opening fire and killing Romero.

Gonzalez has been charged with first degree murder and five counts of attempted murder because there were other people in the garage when Romero was killed.
