(Lancaster) -- Jurors will be asked to decide whether a man is guilty of first-degree murder in a shooting death at a central Pennsylvania bar or acted in self-defense.

Twenty-nine-year-old Lamar Clark of Lancaster is on trial in Lancaster County in the November 2014 shooting at Shenk's Cafe that killed 54-year-old Barry Diffenderfer.

Assistant District Attorney Mark Fetterman told jurors Tuesday that although Clark didn't intend to kill the victim, ``intent follows the bullet.''

Defense attorney Randall Miller said the shooting was self-defense set in motion by two other men. He said his client is only guilty of a firearms count.
