Florida Man Who Fatally Shot Allegedly Unarmed Teenage Boy Says He ‘Acted Responsibly’

Yet another trigger-happy Florida man who is scheduled to face murder and attempted murder charges after he fired 9 shots at a group of teenagers following an argument over loud music insists that he ‘acted responsibly.”

The confrontation that resulted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis started over loud music, according to investigators in Brevard County, Florida.

The incident took place Friday outside a convenience store in Jacksonville, where Davis and four of his friends were hanging out inside a parked SVU.

Lt. Rob Schoonover of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department said 45-year-old Michael David Dunn and his girlfriend, both in town for Dunn’s son’s wedding, pulled up and asked the teens to turn down the music in their car.

Investigators reported that words were exchanged between Davis and Dunn, but did not elaborate.

The confrontation ended after Dunn, a gun collector, pulled out a weapon and fired at least eight shots at the SUV, striking Davis twice.

None of the vehicle’s other occupants were injured.

Dunn’s girlfriend, who was in the store buying wine at the time, returned to the car having her a “popping” sound, and the two bolted from the scene. The unnamed woman told investigators Dunn admitted he “fired at these kids,” but claims they were not aware someone had died until hearing it on the news.

SMH. There seem to still be a couple of holes in this story.

Even if the man IS a registered gun owner and felt threatened, was it really necessary to fire 9 shots? And how could he “not think anyone died?”  We’ll keep you posted as this shady azz story unfolds…
