During Thanksgiving 2012, the Davis family suffered a heartbreaking loss: 17-year-old Jordan Davis was fatally shot during an argument over loud music the day after the holiday, and would never return home.

Today, prosecutors begin laying out their first-degree murder case against 47-year-old Michael Dunn, the man accused of killing Jordan outside of a convenience store in Jacksonville, Fl. The state attorney’s office will present its opening statement in the Dunn trial just one day after a panel of 12 jurors and 4 alternates were given the details of this case.

News4Jax reports:

Authorities say Dunn fatally shot into an SUV where Davis and three other teens were sitting outside a Gate store on Southside Boulevard at Baymeadows Road. Dunn has claimed he felt threatened and thought Davis had a gun, but no weapon was found in the SUV Davis was in when he was killed.

Police say Dunn and Davis began arguing after Dunn complained that music coming from a vehicle with Davis and two friends was too loud.

Jurors were asked if they understood the charges, if they had any first hand encounters with crime or guns, and how they felt about loud music.

Rhonda Peoples-Waters, an attorney who is not affiliated with the case, commented:

“Certainly would expect the state and the defense would want to know what people’s feelings are and what their thoughts are on guns.”

Here are the juror profiles in the case against Michael Dunn:
