Seventeen-year-old Jordan Russell Davis was shot and murdered by 45-year-old Michael David Dunn after the two got into a verbal confrontation over loud music.
Jordan was sitting in a car when Michael pulled up next to him to complain that he was playing his music too loud outside of a convenience store in Jacksonville, Florida. From there, the two exchanged words when Dunn, a registered gun owner and collector, used his firearm to shoot at Davis’ vehicle. He fired eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice in the back seat. No one else was harmed.
Since Jordan’s death on Friday, Michael has entered a not-guilty plea deal, claiming that he felt “threatened.” His lawyer stated that Michael acted responsibly and in self-defense.
Jordan was a student at Samuel W. Wolfson High School, a magnet school in Jacksonville.
How many more Trayvon Martin’s have to die before we reform gun regulation laws? Everyday innocent lives are dying by the hand of legal gun owners, or people who legally purchase guns that are then funneled into the Black market. Enough is enough!
