There are new developments in the departmental trial of two NYPD officers involved in the shooting and killing of Sean Bell.

Closing arguments are expected Wednesday.

Officers Michael Carey and Gescard Isnora testified they acted in self-defense when they and three other policemen fired at Bell outside a Queens strip club in 2006.

Bell was unarmed and died in a hail of more than 50 bullets. His friends, Trent Benefield and Joseph Guzman, were wounded but survived.

Carey and Isnora are accused of violating n-y-p-d guidelines and could lose their jobs.
