Michael Dunn Found Guilty In Florida 'Loud Music' Shooting
Michael Dunn, a 47-year-old Florida man, has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of a teenager in the parking lot of a gas station.
This case dates back to 2012. Dunn shot and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis after arguing over the volume of the music Davis was playing in his car. As we reported earlier this year, a jury was hung on the murder charge against Dunn and prosecutors decided to retry him.
This case was elevated to national news, because of its racial dimensions — Dunn is white; Davis was black — and because it came a few months after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
WJXT-TV in Jacksonville reports that Dunn could be sentenced to life in prison over the conviction.
