Unless you know the person, trust his side of the story (and it is still his side-someone else has another, accurate or not), it is what you read in the newspaper, or hear on some tv editorial.
I read what the newspaper wrote about an incident where I live last week. Tons of information, some of it was even accurate. But, not all of it. I know because I have confidential information based on the ongoing legal investigation. What the paper reported is wrong enough, that people could, and probably will, form wrong conclusions. The same with a shoot by someone they don't personally know.
You know this person. We don't. Trust him? The story in the paper? How do we make that decision? And, of course, worst of all, do the citizens on the jury trust what the prosecuting attorney tells as 'the truth,' or what the defense attorney tells as 'the truth?'
