Michael Dunn found guilty of murdering teen over loud music

A jury on Wednesday found a Florida man guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of a teenager following a dispute about loud music.

In Nov. 2012, 47-year-old Michael Dunn shot and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis in a gas station parking lot. Dunn got in a heated argument with Davis and three other teenagers in an SUV over the volume of the music they were playing, an argument that ended with Dunn firing 10 shots at their vehicle, according to prosecutors. Dunn claimed he fired only after one of the passengers flashed a gun, though police found no evidence to substantiate that claim.

In March, a jury convicted Dunn of three counts of attempted second-degree murder, but deadlocked over the first-degree murder charge, resulting in a retrial.
