BREAKING: Michael Dunn found guilty of first-degree murder in shooting death of Florida teen Jordan Davis

Michael Dunn, the man who shot and killed Florida teenager Jordan Davis in November 2012, has been found guilty of first-degree murder.


Dunn was previously found guilty of three counts of attempted murder in a February trial for shooting at an SUV carrying Davis and three of his friends.
During that trial, the jurors deadlocked on the decision to convict Dunn of first-degree murder.
Tuesday saw Dunn testify in his own defense. The jury began deliberations early Wednesday morning.


From The Florida Times Union:

Dunn, 47, testified that Davis was angrily getting out of a Dodge Durango while holding a shotgun and threatening to kill him when he pulled out his own handgun and opened fire on Davis and others in the vehicle.

“You’re not going to kill me, you [filtered word],” Dunn said he yelled at Davis seconds before firing ten bullets at the Dodge Durango Davis was in.
Dunn said he was scared for his life and would have been killed if he hadn’t pulled out his own gun.
“I shot to defend my own life,” Dunn said at one point while testifying on Tuesday.

During closing statements, Assistant State Attorney John Guy reiterated that no weapons were found on Davis or inside the SUV he and his friends were riding in.

Anyone that knows me or listens to my music knows that I lost my grandmother a woman that helped raise me to breast cancer a few years back and (recently my great grandmother) so this month gets to me a lot. I don’t really do much talking about it but that disease is something I have a deep deep hatred for. Something that has taken a lot of our grandmothers, great-grandmothers aunts, and moms away from us. Something everyday I fear will take more relatives away in the future. I’m not going to say much more because I don’t like talking about it but understand this is a time for awareness and honoring those who’s lives have been effected and not promoting your brands and other bullcrap. It ain’t about opportunities and politics it’s about awareness and treatment and honoring those lost and effected, cause I’d do ANYTHING to have a conversation with my granny right now. Forget everything else.
