Breaking: Michael Dunn gets life for Jordan Davis killing
The Florida man accused of shooting and killing an unarmed 17-year-old teen over a loud music dispute has been sentenced to life in prison.
Michael Dunn, 47, was convicted of first-degree murder for shooting Davis in November 2012.
[Dunn] shot into a SUV of four teenagers 10 times when an argument broke out over loud music coming from the teens’ vehicle. Dunn was sentenced to an additional 90 years in prison for three attempted murder convictions and another 15 years for firing into an occupied vehicle. “Our justice system works. This case demonstrates that our justice system does work,” said Judge Russell Healey at the sentencing.
Dunn was found guilty on three counts of second-degree attempted murder in January, but a mistrial was declared in the first-degree murder charge stemming from Davis’ death. Earlier this month, a second jury found Dunn guilty of murdering the black teenager.
Prosecutors did not pursue the death penalty.
