Another Unarmed Black Student Is Shot And Killed In Florida
Less than a year after the shooting of Trayvon Martin, another unarmed black teenager was killed in Florida. Michael David Dunn, a 45-year-old data systems company vice president, was in Jacksonville for his son’s wedding. The Orlando Sentinel details the story
Jordan Russell Davis, 17, and several other teenagers were sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot when Dunn pulled up next to them in a car and asked them to turn down their music, [Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob] Schoonover said…
Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice, Schoonover said. Jordan was sitting in the back seat. No one else was hurt.
Dunn’s attorney Monday said her client acted responsibly and in self-defense. She did not elaborate.
Dunn, a gun collector, is being held on charges of murder and attempted murder.
