The trial for Michael Dunn, the man who fatally shot unarmed Florida teen Jordan Davis in November 2012, just months after Trayvon Martin was killed, is set to start on Monday.

A judge has decided not to televise the jury selection for Dunn’s high-profile trial.

If you recall, Dunn shot Jordan during a verbal dispute at a gas station regarding the teen’s music. He is claiming self-defense in the shooting and is reportedly using Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law as defense.

Dunn told police that he asked Davis and three other teens, who were parked next to him at a Jacksonville gas station, to turn down their music. Dunn said he heard threats from the teens and saw a gun in their car.

He said he feared for his safety, and that’s why he grabbed his gun and fired into the vehicle.

Police, however, never found a firearm inside the teens’ vehicle. Dunn, on the other hand, shot his gun eight or nine times, striking and killing Jordan.

He was charged with first-degree murder and also faces three counts of attempted first-degree murder for shooting at the three others in the vehicle. He has pleaded not guilty.

We’ll keep you updated on any developments in the trial. May justice be served for Jordan Davis.
