|Michael David Dunn, Murderous Asshole|
From The Tennessean:
JACKSONVILLE — A Florida jury found a software engineer guilty of attempted murder and shooting into a car full of teenagers, but they could not agree on first-degree murder in the death of one of the teenaged boys.
Thirty-one hours after deliberations over four days, a jury could not decide if Michael David Dunn, 47, was guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Jordan Davis, 17, during a confrontation over loud rap music in a Jacksonville gas station parking lot.
Circuit Judge Russell Healey declared a mistrial on the first-degree murder count. State Attorney Angela Corey said after the verdict that her office would retry Dunn for first-degree murder. The jury found Dunn guilty of three counts of attempted second-degree murder and shooting a deadly missile when he fired 10 times at Davis' SUV, hitting the vehicle nine times during the November 2012 fight. Dunn shot and killed Davis, who was sitting in the vehicle with three of his friends. Dunn says he acted in self-defense.
