After experiencing a false sense of innocence when a jury couldn’t reach a verdict in February, Michael Dunn has been found guilty of murder in the first-degree for killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis, the unarmed teen whose music was apparently too loud to constitute a reason for living.
Reports Huffington Post:
The jury took about 5 hours to reach a verdict on Wednesday.
A jury deadlocked in February over whether to convict him of killing Davis.
He was convicted on three counts of attempted murder for shooting at Davis’ friends in the car.
Dunn testified at this month’s trial as well as his last that he killed Davis in self-defense after the teen threatened him. He also said he thought Davis had a gun, but no weapon was ever found.
At a press conference after the verdict was read, Davis’ father, Ron, told reporters, “We must do a better job of loving each other.”
Dunn had maintained he was in fear of his life when he fired 10 shots into the SUV that Davis and three of his friends had parked in November 2012.
The jury did manage to convict him of second-degree murder and he was already facing 60 years for that charge. Now, it appears the jig is completely up.
