Prosecutors are asking a judge to deny bail to the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis and are disputing that the three other teenagers with the victim left the scene and could have discarded a weapon.
They fled only a few hundred feet and for less than two minutes, according to an affidavit.
Wednesday the State Attorneys Office released its motion to deny bail to Michael David Dunn, 46, who has been in jail since shortly after the November shooting outside a Jacksonville convenience store.
A three-page affidavit from the lead detective in the case says the teenagers never left the area. Detective M.A. Musser also said Dunn told him he saw the barrel of a shotgun as Davis started to get out of the red Dodge Durango.
When Dunn was informed that no gun was found in vehicle or surrounding area, he told Musser that he saw either a barrel or a stick.
Dunns arrest report said Jordan was in the Durango on Nov. 23 with three friends when Dunn and his girlfriend pulled up next to them in a Volkswagen Jetta at the convenience store. Dunn complained about loud music coming from the Durango and fired multiple shots during the confrontation before returning to his home in Brevard County, police said.
Police tracked him there the next day using license tag information provided by witnesses.
During Tuesdays bail hearing, defense attorney Cory Strolla said two people who called 911 that night reported that the Durango left the gas station parking lot moments after the gunfire. Strolla said those witnesses reported seeing two men jump out of the SUV and it appeared as if they were trying to hide something.
But the affidavit from Musser contradicts that.

The evidence suggests that Dunn is a loudmouth murderer with a drinking problem and a courage deficit.
He better think carefully about what his girlfriend is going to say in her deposition.
He can't assume that her version of events will conform with his.
