A Lubbock murder defendant is now claiming he shot Larry Jerome Issac Junior in self-defense.

Terrance Rhone took the stand in his own defense, Wednesday afternoon. He's on trial for shooting 29-year-old Larry Issac last July. Isaac died from his injuries six weeks later.

Wednesday, Rhone testified that Isaac hit him with his Cadillac in the Rainbow Car Wash parking lot in the 1600 Block of East Broadway on July 8, 2004. Rhone said he fell to the ground and saw Isaac walking toward him so he pulled out his gun and shot him. The state argues the self-defense claim because the gunshot wound was in the back of the head.

Closing arguments are set to begin Thursday morning. If convicted, Rhone faces fifteen to ninety-nine years or life in prison.
