Jury selection for boxing trainer accused in shooting death

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Jury selection was scheduled to begin Monday in the trial of a trainer accused of opening fire at a Vista boxing club after being barred from the gym, killing another trainer and wounding two others.

Mark Anthony Diaz, 50, is charged with murder, attempted murder, assault with a firearm and making a threat. He faces 75 years to life in prison, if convicted.

Diaz allegedly killed 52-year-old Hector Gil and wounded 21-year-old boxer Ricardo Gutierrez and trainer Peter Moreno at Pacific Coast Boxing the night of April 7, 2010.

During an earlier hearing, trainer Albert Gamez testified that Gil told him that Diaz was upset because Gutierrez - who had just turned professional - had switched from Diaz to Gil as his trainer.
