An eyewitness to a fatal shooting in 2017 told a jury that he and his cousin were about to sell marijuana to three teens when a gun was pulled on them, as the trial of Charles Robnett began Monday. Robnett is the first of three people to go on trial in the death of Gary Barnhardt, 20, on Oct. 16, 2017. Barnhardt died at the scene near Lake Bend East and Fountain Lake on the Northeast Side in what authorities described as a botched drug deal. Robnett, Michael Aguilar and Emmanuel Herrera, all 18 at the time, were initially arrested on murder charges that were upgraded to capital murder-other felony.
