As previously reported by NewsOne, Dunn gunned down Davis at a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida on November 23rd, 2012. The software programmer claims that he felt threatened by the teen — who was sitting inside of an SUV with friends — and loud music coming from the vehicle, so he sprayed it with nine bullets before driving away, leaving Davis to die in a friend’s arms.
None of the teens had weapons.
The jury, which was composed of four White women, two Black women, four White men, one Asian woman and one Hispanic man, deliberated for four days and remained deadlocked on the 1st-degree murder charge and lesser charges, including second degree murder, manslaughter, justifiable homicide, or excusable homicide.
During a post-trial press conference, Florida state special prosecutor Angela Corey said that Dunn will be retried on the 1st-degree murder charge.
“We intend to fully push for a new trial….Justice for Jordan Davis is as important as it is for any victim,” Corey said.
