JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jury selection is scheduled to begin later this month for a man charged with attempted murder in the shooting of former Jacksonville Jaguars player Richard Collier.

Tyrone Hartsfield is charged with shooting Collier on September 2nd, 2008, outside a Jacksonville apartment house.

Collier received 14 bullet wounds leaving him paralyzed.

Doctors also had to amputate his left leg.

Police believe the 33-year-old Hartsfield was retaliating after being beaten by Collier in a fight several months before.

At the final pretrial hearing Thursday, defense attorney Ann Finnell and Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda told Circuit Judge Mallory Cooper they are ready for trial.

The date has been set for October 26th.

Hartsfield has been held without bond for a year awaiting trial.
