Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson told The Post that Stubbs, who also played basketball in high school, will be on trial Friday.

Authorities have yet to reveal a motive for killing the officer, but Jackson said the young cop was killed during a surprise attack.

Jackson said Tuesday that he expects a suspect during the 4 a.m. shooting to be caught early.
