    Less than a week after Michael Dunn was not convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of an unarmed teenager, a bipartisan group of Florida lawmakers passed a bill out of committee on Thursday that would expand the state’s controversial “stand your ground” law. Dunn, 47, was charged with murdering 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a convenience store last year. Dunn said he feared for his life after he asked Davis and three other teenagers to turn down the music in their car. He claimed he saw a shotgun in their car and then fired 10 shots, three of which...

    Rabid race-agitator Soledad O’Brien seems to have stayed on at CNN after all, close-cropping her locks and disguising herself as weekend anchor Don Lemon. Lemon, his obnoxious guest Marc Lamont Hill, and a gaggle of other slobbering, bug-eyed maniacs made a mockery of the TV news reporting profession this past Saturday, shrieking and jabbering hysterically about yet another racially charged, high-profile Florida murder case as its outcome was being deliberated and finally announced. While it became increasingly apparent that the jury in the Michael Dunn case was deadlocked over the murder charge against him, an especially vitriolic Lemon and his...

    A man with a gun. A black teen, shot dead. Was it murder or self-defense? Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in Florida in the trial of 47-year-old Michael Dunn, a Satellite Beach software developer charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder in the November 2012 shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Authorities say an argument over loud music led to the shooting. Davis was parked in a vehicle with three friends outside the store. Dunn and his fiance had just left a wedding reception and were heading back home when they stopped at the...

    ATLANTA (AP) - The fatal shooting of a Florida teenager who was listening to loud music in a car a week ago has drawn comparisons to the Trayvon Martin case, but the differences are significant. Unlike the Martin case, there were several witnesses to this shooting and there was no scuffle before 17-year-old Jordan Davis was shot to death. And notably, the man accused of firing into the car was arrested a day later. Michael David Dunn is charged with murder and attempted murder in the Nov. 23 shooting at a Jacksonville, Fla., gas station. The 45-year-old Dunn parked beside...

    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...

    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 Attorney’s 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...
