Jurors have watched a video that shows the scene of a shooting that killed two Auburn University football players and another man.

Prosecutors played surveillance video from the shooting on Monday during the trial of 24-year-old Desmonte Leonard.

The video shows a large crowd in a corridor during a party at an apartment complex in June 2012. People suddenly scatter, and two men fall to the ground.

They struggle to get back up and move away.

The shooter isn't shown, and a witness didn't identify anyone shown in the video.

Prosecutors say Leonard pulled the trigger, killing three people and wounding three others.

The defense doesn't deny that Leonard pulled the trigger. But Leonard's lawyers say he was in fear for his life and fired in self-defense.
