Florida – The trial of Michael Dunn, a man accused of killing a teenager over loud music, has begun in Florida. As reported by ABC News, Dunn has been charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder in connection with a 2012 dispute outside of a convenience store that led to the death of Jordan Davis, 17.
Dunn allegedly shot into the vehicle where Davis and his friends were sitting after pulling up next to them and telling them to turn their music volume down. Davis was struck in the back and groin. Dunn’s attorney claims his client fired in self-defense.
Some say the incident draws parallels to the controversial case of George Zimmerman, who pleaded self-defense after being charged with the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Jury selection for Dunn’s trial began on Monday.
