Fla. Man Guilty Of Lesser Counts In Loud Music Shooting

Posted: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man has been convicted of three counts of attempted second-degree murder after an argument over loud music outside of a convenience store.

A mistrial was declared Saturday on a first-degree murder charge after the jury couldn't agree on it.

The 12 jurors also found 47-year-old Michael Dunn guilty of shooting into an occupied car.

Dunn was charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga., in 2012 after they got into an argument over the music that was coming from Davis' parked vehicle.

Dunn fired 10 shots, hitting the vehicle nine times. Also in the vehicle were three friends of Davis.

Dunn claimed he acted in self-defense, testifying that he thought he saw a gun pointed at him from Davis' vehicle.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A judge has asked jurors to continue deliberating on the fate of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music because the panel expressed difficulty.

On their fourth day of deliberations, the jurors told Judge Russell L. Healey that they haven't been able to reach a unanimous verdict on the first-degree murder charge against Michael Dunn. They said they've reached a verdict on four other counts against him.

Healey asked the jury to keep trying.

Dunn is charged with first-degree murder for fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. Dunn claims he shot the teen in self-defense. Prosecutors told jurors Dunn shot the teen because he felt disrespected by Davis during an argument over loud music.
