State attorney to prosecute loud music shooting case

The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — State Attorney Angela Corey says she will personally prosecute the central Florida man charged with killing a Jacksonville teenager following an argument over loud music coming from the teen’s car.

The Florida Times-Union ( ) reports that Corey confirmed during a hearing Tuesday that she will be prosecuting 46-year-old Michael David Dunn.

Dunn is charged with first-degree murder in the Nov. 23 shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

Authorities say Dunn parked at a Jacksonville gas station next to the vehicle where Davis was sitting with three other teens. Dunn complained about the loud music, and they started arguing. Dunn told police he thought he saw a gun and fired eight or nine shots into the vehicle.

Dun fled the scene and was later arrested at his Brevard County home.
