17-Year Old Shot, Killed For Playing Loud Music In Florida Parking Lot

A 17-year old boy was shot and killed after a 45-year old man drove up and parked next to the teen’s car and asked him to turn the music down. Reports state words were exchanged, then the man, Michael David Dunn, in town for his son’s wedding, wedding, reportedly shot eight or nine bullets into Jordan Russell Davis, then drove away.

“Dunn and his girlfriend took off afterward, and witnesses jotted down their tag number, deputies said,” The Orlando Sentinel reports:

They were staying in a Jacksonville hotel when they heard a news report Saturday morning indicating someone had died in the shooting, deputies said. They then returned to Brevard.

Dunn, a gun collector, was arrested Saturday at his home in Satellite Beach on charges of murder and attempted murder. He was being held without bail.

Jordan, who was a student at Samuel W. Wolfson High School, a magnet school in Duval County, will be buried in his hometown of Marietta, Ga. He is survived by his parents and a brother. Jordan worked at Winn-Dixie, according to his Facebook page.

The shooting comes less than nine months after another Florida murder, that of Trayvon Martin, as Scott Keyes at Think Progress notes. Davis was a Black teen. Dunn is white, and claims he felt “threatened.” Davis was unarmed. Florida’s so-called “stand your ground” law, which came to national attention after the Trayvon Martin murder, is still in effect.

With each passing day I hope more and more that the Mayans were right. This planet needs an enema.

How sad that racism is alive and well. I feel sorry for the family of the young man who will now trust white people even less. I feel sorry for the family of the man who shot him because they are going to have to live with the shame of what he did. I hope he gets the max for killing a child.

Horrendous tragedy. There's nothing worse than taking a child away from his parents.
