jordanD3

A grand jury in Florida indicted Michael Dunn, who shot and killed teenager Jordan Davis during an argument over loud music. Davis was seated in the back of a vehicle when he was shot the day after Thanksgiving in a gas station parking lot in Jacksonville Florida.  Dunn, the shooter, left the scene after the shooting.

The grand jury also indicted Dunn on three counts of attempted murder in addition to the first degree murder charge.

“Officials say Dunn parked next to the vehicle where Davis was sitting with three other teens,” reports the Huffington Post.  Three other teens were in the vehicle.

Dunn complained about the loud music and he and the teen began to argue.  According to police, Dunn opened fire at least eight times.  Dunn told police he thought he saw a gun.  No gun was found among the teens in the vehicle.
