Parties agreed to select the jury for a 2021 homicide case at a later date due to a scheduling conflict. 

Idrissa Fall, 37, is charged with first-degree murder premeditated while armed, possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a prior convict for his alleged involvement in the shooting of 29-year-old Dara Northern. The incident occurred on the 6100 block of 4th Street, NW, on July 18, 2021.

DC Superior Court Judge Rainey Brandt, who is scheduled to hear an estimated two-day trial for another case in November, asked to push back jury selection for this case. The jury, which was supposed to be picked on Nov. 13, will now be chosen on Nov. 18. The prosecution and defense will begin opening statements that afternoon.

Parties are slated to return on Oct. 1.
