Valerie said that the jurors in favor of convicting Dunn believed that he used unnecessary force when he shot Davis.
“We all believed there was another way out, another option,” she said in the Nightline interview.
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.
