FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) Potential jurors will be questioned individually Wednesday as jury selection continues in the murder trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood.

Maj. Nidal Hasan declined to question the first group of 20 officers from Army posts nationwide when jury selection began Tuesday. He's serving as his own attorney.

Six potential jurors were dismissed at prosecutors' request. Among them was an officer who knew one of the 13 killed on Nov. 5, 2009.

Hasan faces execution or life without parole if convicted in the rampage that left 13 dead and nearly three dozen wounded on the Texas Army post.

A group of officers who equal Hasan's rank or higher will arrive each week until a 13- to 16-member jury is chosen for Hasan's court-martial.
