TULSA — The trial of a 25-year-old man charged with shooting into a crowded Tulsa plaza is set to begin.

Andrew Dennehy is charged in the March 7, 2012, shooting, in the plaza between the Tulsa County courthouse and Tulsa Central Library that injured a deputy sheriff and a bystander. Denney was also wounded when authorities arrived and returned fire.

Dennehy has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Dennehy's family and attorney say he's a paranoid schizophrenic plagued by bizarre thoughts and delusions. Prosecutors say Dennehy is bluffing and understands the charges against him.
