On Tuesday, the defense continues laying out their case for 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.
On Monday, the prosecution rested their case and the first of nearly 10 witnesses for the defense was called. All were character witnesses (including Dunn’s son) and commented on Dunn’s “calming demeanor.”
Jordan’s father, Ron Davis, also took the stand. Defense attorney Cory Strolla attempted to impeach him as a witness, arguing that his deposition was not in line with his testimony.
Today, the defense is expected to call two more witnesses — an expert and Dunn himself.
