JACKSONVILLE, FL — Circuit Judge Russell Healey announced today that the jury in the murder trial for Michael David Dunn has reached a verdict on four of the five counts against him.

After nearly 30 hours of jury deliberations jurors said they could not reach a unanimous verdict on Count 1, first-degree murder, or any of the lesser offenses related to it. The judge brought the jurors into the courtroom and asked them to try again to reach a decision.

Dunn shot and killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis in November of 2012 over a confrontation about loud rap music.

“We’ll be in recess until we hear something more from the jury,” Healey said.

Dunn faces charges of first-degree murder, three counts of first-degree attempted murder, and one count of shooting or throwing a deadly missile. Jurors can consider lesser charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter, second-degree attempted murder and attempted manslaughter.
