JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jurors deciding the fate of a Florida man, Michael Dunn, charged with fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music are going back to their hotel for the evening without reaching a verdict.
The 12 jurors deliberated for 10 more hours Friday before asking the judge if they could stop for the night and continue Saturday morning. So far, they have deliberated for 22 hours over three days.
Dunn is charged with first-degree murder for fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. Dunn claims he shot the Marietta, Ga., teen in self-defense. But prosecutors told jurors Dunn shot the teen because he felt disrespected by Davis during an argument over loud music.
