Closing arguments start in loud music death trial


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – The prosecution has begun its closing argument in the trial of a Florida man accused of fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music.

Assistant State Attorney Erin Wolfson told jurors Wednesday the evidence clearly shows 17-year-old Jordan Davis was unarmed when Michael Dunn shot into the rear passenger door of a Dodge Durango where Davis was sitting.

Evidence showed there were three other teenagers in the vehicle, two of whom barely escaped being shot. No witness saw anyone in their car with a weapon.

Wolfson said the 47-year-old Dunn felt disrespected by the teenager and responded by firing 10 shots at the vehicle.

Jurors are expected to begin deliberations later Wednesday in the first-degree murder trial.
