    FL - Michael Dunn on trial for shooting death of Jordan Davis, 17 - #5

    Argument over loud music led to teen's fatal shooting, cops say (orlandosentinel.com)
    A Brevard County man was in jail Monday, accused of shooting a teenager dead in an argument over loud music.

    Michael David Dunn, 45, and his girlfriend were in Jacksonville Friday for Dunn's son's wedding when they stopped at a convenience store, Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob Schoonover said.

    Jordan Russell Davis, 17, and several other teenagers were sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot when Dunn pulled up next to them in a car and asked them to turn down their music, Schoonover said.

    Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice, Schoonover said. Jordan was sitting in the back seat. No one else was hurt.

    Dunn's attorney Monday said her client acted responsibly and in self-defense. She did not elaborate.

    Is it weird that he is releasing alternates?? Never mind...got it.

    Don't they usually hold on to them through verdict?

    Healey is keeping the alternates around "for awhile" in case something happens to jurors #DunnTrial #MichaelDunn

    Does anyone know if HLN has been covering this? Sorry, I just can't bring myself to turn on that station!

    Well, the last two days I did on TV. I believe that reasonable doubt has been established that it was possible for the young men to have a gun in the car and that the area of the Plaza and Convenience Store was not thoroughly searched for days while even then, the search was hap hazard, contrary to the Detective who told Dunn that the area was searched when it was not.
    They sure did not look like kids to me.
    Anyone know were Juror 8, 9 and 10 fell into the mix? Jurors or alternatives?

    The "no retreat necessary" clause gives the jurors zero concrete evidence as to the thoughts (no action) of the defendant.

    Someone here mentioned how "civil" the discussions are on this thread. That is pretty easy to do when everyone agrees. I have been reluctant to voice my opinion, because I know how nasty it can be when 99% of the thread believes one way.
    I wish that weren't true.

    yes I agree

    Judge is now thanking everyone involved. Nice. He sounds sincere. Would love to know though what the complaints and minor issues were.
