Trial for White Florida Man Who Killed Unarmed Black Teen Starts Today

Michael David Dunn

Jury selection is scheduled to start Monday in the highly publicized murder trial of Michael David Dunn, who fatally shot a Jacksonville teenager during a dispute over loud music in November 2012. Dunn, 47, of South Patrick Shores faces charges of first-degree murder, three counts of attempted murder and shooting or throwing a deadly missile.

Detectives say Dunn fired two volleys of bullets at a Dodge Durango containing four Black teens during a profane parking-lot argument at a Jacksonville gas station, killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

Questioned by detectives in Viera the afternoon after the shooting, Dunn said he feared for his life and acted in self-defense — and he thought he saw Davis raise the barrel of a shotgun above the SUV's rear-passenger window. Police said no firearm was found at the scene.
