Trayvon Martin Part Two: FL Teen Jordan Davis Shot to Death Over Loud Music

mikeDunn1

Unlike the case of George Zimmerman who shot Trayvon Martin to death on February 26 in Sanford, Florida.  Michael Dunn, 45, was actually arrested and remains behind bars charged with the murder of 17 year old Jordan Davis in Jacksonville, Fla. the day after Thanksgiving.

It has been reported that what led to the shooting was an argument over loud music.  The incident occurred in a gas station parking lot.  Dunn is reported to have shot at a vehicle Davis was in six or seven times.  Davis, who was killed, was reportedly seated in the back seat at the time of the incident.

Dunn, in a court appearance this morning, is pleading self defense.  None of the teens involved in the incident possessed a firearm.

“Your worst fears come true when the doctor comes in the room with the police officer and the chaplain,” his father Ron Davis told News4Jax. “And my heart just sank.”  Davis, who was 17, will be buried in Georgia on Dec. 1.

Dunn’s attorney claims that his client felt threatened.  Dunn is facing attempted murder charges and has been denied bond. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that, ”Dunn, told police he felt threatened during an argument Friday with Jordan Davis after Dunn complained the music the teen was playing in his car was too loud.”

The paper also reported that, “Jacksonville homicide Lt. Rob Schoonover said Dunn pulled out a weapon and started firing into the vehicle. Davis was shot a few times. Eight or nine bullet holes were also found in the car.”

Dunn’s attorney claims that his client felt threatened.  Dunn is facing attempted murder charges and has been denied bond.  Everyone expects Dunn will evoke “stand your ground.”

The paper also reported that, “Jacksonville homicide Lt. Rob Schoonover said Dunn pulled out a weapon and started firing into the vehicle. Davis was shot a few times. Eight or nine bullet holes were also found in the car.”

Schoonover added: “Our suspect produced a weapon and started firing into the vehicle. Our victim was shot a couple of times. They were listening to the music. It was loud; they [other teens] admitted that. But I mean that is not a reason for someone to open fire on them.”
