Michael Dunn was shooting to kill, not defending himself, when he fired at 17-year-old Jordan Davis after the two had an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store, prosecutors said during closing arguments on Tuesday in the second trial in the case. Closings began after the 47-year-old Dunn took the witness stand in his own defense, saying he feared for his life when he opened fire in November 2012. “He wasn’t shooting at the tires. He wasn’t shooting at the windows. He was shooting to kill. Aiming at Jordan Davis,” prosecutor Erin Wolfson told jurors.
Jurors will hear instructions from the judge Wednesday morning, and then will begin deliberations. Prosecutors say Dunn killed Davis, of Marietta, Georgia, when he fired 10 times into an SUV carrying four teenagers.
Dunn was convicted of three counts of attempted second-degree murder in February and already faces at least 60 years in prison. The jury in the first trial deadlocked on the first-degree murder count.
