A Brevard County man remained in jail late Tuesday, accused of shooting a teenager dead in an argument over loud music.
Michael David Dunn, 45, and his girlfriend were in Jacksonville Friday for Dunn's son's wedding when they stopped at a convenience store, Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob Schoonover said.
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, 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.

Very poor gun control.
Dunn’s a little high strung.
Thank a lot for muddying the waters jack wagon.
Not everything is a “Trayvon Martin”, where the guy is leaped on and is on the ground fighting for his life, and is already bloody and battered as he desperately squeezes off a shot that saves his life.
It isn’t fair to Zimmerman and to extreme self-defense cases, to keep using this “Trayvon” thing so casually and as a catch phrase.
We don’t know what kind of a weapon (if any) Davis pulled on Dunn. Dunn claims self-defense, but the story is silent about what he was defending against Is this silence intended to make the hooded corpse into another supposedly innocent boy victim?
Yeah, we don’t know anything yet.
This wasn’t a fact based list, or description, it is just a vague outline of something involving a shooting.
We don’t know squat, so it is too early to be drawing up scenarios, taking sides on various scenarios, and drifting into hardened positions as though we have a side to take, we don’t, we don’t know anything at this point.
But you know how these threads go.
#1 is a biggie.
Loud music at home? I call the cops.
Loud music at a convenience store? WTF?
Notice the pleasant, almost smiling demeanor on the victim as compared to the sullen, frowning face
of the shooter.
Not to mention the victim's first name being used exclusively in the article while only referencing
the shooter by his last name. Pretty easy to see how this story is going to be framed by the MSM....
....regardless of the facts.
Gotta feed the narrative.
Yeah. You can bet the Brown Shirt Media will have this story out front coast to coast. And on the satellites by dawn. Still nothing from them on Christian and his girlfriend for what, five years nw?
There must be more to the story. Looks like he’s lawyered up for now. His GF was inside the store, so he couldn’t just leave. If he couldn’t shut out most of the noise by just keeping his windows rolled up, it must have been really loud.
Dunno the details but yer mobile and it’s a big wedding night.
It smells fishy.
Gunning someone down at the quick stop and then fleeing the scene and spending the night in a motel, doesn’t help one to appear like a man with a clean case of self-defense.
Well, I know how he feels. Many are the times I’ve wished I owned a bazooka.

Well, that wasn’t the smartest post I’ve seen today.
