On Monday, prosecutors continue laying out their first-degree murder case against 47-year-old Michael Dunn, the man accused of killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside of a gas station convenience store in Jacksonville, Fl.
A panel of 12 jurors and 4 alternates were seated to hear the case, which details a trip to the gas station gone wrong after an argument over loud music ensued.
Dunn is also charged with the attempted murder of Leland Brunson, Tommie Stornes and Tevin Thompson, who were with Davis for a Black Friday shopping day when Dunn opened fire on their Dodge Durango at a Southside Gate gas station. Jordan’s three friends testified on Friday that the teen did not make threatening remarks to Dunn. They also told prosecutor John Guy and defense attorney Cory Strolla that Dunn aimed his weapon directly at Jordan’s door.
On Saturday, the trial continued, seeing the testimony of prosecution witness Rhonda Rouer, who is also Dunn’s fiancée.
Fighting back tears, Rouer testified that she had two rum and colas at the 2012 wedding of Dunn’s son prior to pulling into the Gate gas station that night. Dunn, she said, had “maybe three or four.” Rouer also told the jury what she heard Dunn say before she got out of the vehicle to pick up a bottle of wine in the store.
“I hate that thug music,” Rouer testified Dunn told her. Rouer replied, “Yes, I know,” and then exited the vehicle.
Later, she heard the gunshots.
“I heard pop, pop, pop.”
So far, the prosecution has presented 22 witnesses against Dunn. On Monday, they are likely to call a medical examiner who will testify that Davis was still in the Durango and leaning away from Dunn when he was shot.
The mother of Brunson and the father of Davis also are expected to answer questions.
