The parents of Jordan Davis, a black Florida teen who was shot in an altercation over loud music, spoke to Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts on Wednesday morning about the controversial verdict in their son’s death.
A jury found Michael Dunn, the 47-year-old white software engineer who shot Davis, guilty on three counts of second-degree attempted murder. The jury could not come to a decision on the charge of first-degree murder.
Dunn got into an argument with four young men in a Jacksonville parking lot on Nov. 23, 2012 over the volume of the music playing in an SUV next to his car. Davis was one of the passengers in the SUV. The argument culminated in Dunn firing several shots at the vehicle, killing Davis.
Dunn argued that he fired in self-defense, claiming that he feared for his life during the argument and that he saw Davis brandish a gun. No weapon was ever found.
