Man Who Shot At Teenager 10 Times For Playing Loud Music Sentenced To Life Imprisonment

share on:

Michael Dunn has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the killing of a teenager whom he shot over loud music.

Dunn was convicted of first-degree murder at a second trial in September after jurors deadlocked on the charge at his initial trial in February.

Prosecutors said Dunn, who is white, fired 10 times into a sport utility vehicle carrying black teenagers in November 2012 and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Georgia.

Evidence showed that Dunn, of Satellite Beach, fired the shots during a heated argument over the volume of music coming from the SUV carrying Davis and three other teenagers.

Dunn was convicted of three counts of second-degree murder in his first trial because he continued to fire into the Dodge Durango as the driver tried to flee.

Judge Russell Healey on Friday sentenced him to a minimum of 60 years in prison for those charges, to be served consecutively with the life sentence.
