Trial resumes for the man accused of opening fire outside the Tulsa County Courthouse in March 2012.

Andrew Dennehy faces multiple charges, including two counts of shooting with intent to kill.

FOX23 News is inside the courthouse today, listening to testimony from deputies who were out on the plaza that day.

The defense and prosecutors are going through step-by-step of what the deputies recall from that day.

Deputy Stephen Culley said "I was scared to death" when he came upon the scene. He recalled yelling "Drop your weapon, drop your gun" for 30-40 seconds before Dennehy allegedly turned and fired a shot in the deputy's direction. Deputy David Fortenberry was the one shot.

Culley fired two shots at defendant and he fell to the ground.

On Wednesday jurors listened to both the defense and the prosecution lay out details of the case.

Jurors were told they will need to determine if Dennehy was sane at the time of the crime.

Fortenberry's wounds were the result of firing wildly and hitting a concrete planter at close range. TPD even says the "gunman" never shot anyone, and they watched the video. The deputies ignored the fact that they were shooting right into a crowded public library.
