READING, Pa. -

A Reading man went on trial Monday in a shooting that killed one man and wounded another.

Luis Miguel Navedo shot the two men in the parking lot of the Jet Set restaurant on South 9th Street in Reading on Sept. 3, 2012, police said.

One of the victims, Jose Rivera, 27, was killed by a gunshot wound to the chest; the other victim suffered a wound to his arm.

The shooting, police said, followed a fight that started inside the restaurant.

Navedo fled to Puerto Rico, where he was arrested in January 2013, police said.

A jury will eventually decide whether Navedo is guilty. His attorney, Jay Nigrini, said he expects the trial to last through the week.
