LITTLE ROCK, AR - A pretrial hearing was held Tuesday for a former Little Rock police officer accused in the shooting death of a teenager.   

Josh Hastings faces manslaughter charges for the death of 15-year-old Bobby Moore back in August.

Attorneys in the case filed a number of motions for the trial which is scheduled to begin next week.

He claims he shot Moore in self defense because the teen tried to run him over.  Prosecutors say other evidence shows the car Moore was driving was in park or reverse.

The trial is set to begin next Tuesday.
