Justice for Jordan Davis trial: ‘Jordan had no gun’
Police officers, and friends of slain teen Jordan Davis took the stand today in the second day of the trial that will decide Michael Dunn’s fate.
Davis, 17, died in a gas station parking lot after an altercation over loud music. Dunn fired into the vehicle where Davis and his friends sat.
Officers Robert Holmes and Dawn Valentine of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said they found 17-year-old Jordan Davis slumped against another young man in the backseat of the SUV.
Blood was coming out of the back of the teen from Marietta, Ga., Holmes said. […]
Davis’ friend, Tevin Thompson, who was sitting in the front passenger seat at the time of the shooting, testified that he and his friends were playing music loudly in their SUV while they waited for another friend to make a purchase inside the convenience store.
During opening statements Thursday, prosecutor John Guy told jurors that Davis posed no threat to Dunn and that no weapon was found in Davis’ vehicle.
“Jordan Davis was upset, no doubt. He was cussing, no doubt. He raised his voice, no doubt. But he never threatened the guy,” Guy said. “The only thing he had on his person was a cellphone and a pocket knife. They stayed in his pocket.”
Dunn has entered a plea of not guilty. Under Florida’s “stand your ground” law, he may be eligible for immunity.
