Man Who Killed Teen For Playing Loud Music Claims 'Self Defense'
A man in Florida who opened fire on a group of teens after asking them to turn their music down has claimed that he is not guilty because he was acting in self defense. 45 year old gun collector Michael Dunn shot and killed 17 year old Jordan Davis at a petrol station in Jacksonville during the incident. Dunn, reportedly on the way to his son's wedding, exchanged words with the car full of teenagers, before pulling out a handgun and firing into the car. Jacksonville homicide Lt. Rob Schoonover has offered the following statement regarding the incident: "[The music] was loud. They admitted that. That's not a reason for someone to open fire... Nobody else in that vehicle was struck; it was just our victim [Davis], which was lucky because the vehicle was shot eight or nine times." According to Schoonover, Dunn had acted after "feeling" threatened by the teens: "His side of the story is he felt threatened and that is the reason he took action". The trial is currently ongoing.
