ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The murder trial of a man accused of gunning down another man outside the Albany Mall last May starts Monday.

Twenty-five-year-old Quantravious Upshaw is charged with malice murder, felony murder, and aggravated assault.

He was arrested May 10th, moments after 41-year-old Terrence Bowen was shot and killed outside J. C. Penney at the Albany Mall.

An off duty police officer saw Upshaw running from the mall to a car wash, followed him, and caught him.

This murder grabbed the attention of city leaders because it happened outside one of South Georgia's busiest retail sites.

Jury selection begins Monday.
