Former Mesa, Ariz., Police Officer Philip Brailsford in Maricopa County Superior Court during a hearing. Brailsford goes on trial this week on a murder charge in the January 2016 shooting death of Daniel Shaver of Granbury, Texas, at a hotel in Mesa. Brailsford has said he shot Shaver because he believed Shaver was reaching for a gun during a tense encounter outside his hotel room. Prosecutors say no gun was found on Shaver’s body and maintain the on-duty shooting wasn’t justified.
