Murder Trial Begins For Man Who Killed Teen Over Loud Music
Last thing we need is another George Zimmerman.
According to CNN:
Opening statements begin Thursday in the trial of Michael Dunn, who fatally shot a teenager in Florida following a spat over loud music.
Dunn has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Jordan Davis, 17, and attempted first-degree murder for shooting at three friends accompanying the teen.
The shooting at a Jacksonville gas station in November 2012 is drawing parallels to that of Trayvon Martin, another teenager shot in Florida by watchman George Zimmerman.
But a legal expert says the cases are far from similar.
In Dunn’s case, he said he asked the four teens to turn down their music after he got annoyed by the “heavy bass” emanating from it.
He told police that when he asked Davis and the three teens parked next to him to lower their volume, he heard threats and saw a gun in their car.
Fearing for his safety, he said, he grabbed a gun and fired into the vehicle eight or nine times.
Dunn was reacting to what he said was a gun being drawn, said Robin Lemonidis, his attorney.
Authorities found no guns in the car the teens were riding in.
Jordan’s mother, Lucia McBath, said her son’s death has been hard.
“The most difficult, challenging year of my life, the most painful year of my life,” she said.
This guy is gonna need a lot more people if he wants to convince the jury that he was just “standing his ground” FOH!
