Trial Begins in Case of Man Who Killed Florida Teen Over Loud Music

The trial of Michael Dunn, began Thursday. Dunn claims he felt threatened by Jordan Davis and his three teenage friends after in an SUV that pulled up next to him. According to his police interview, one of the teens in the car said something about "killing." Dunn said when Davis allegedly bent down in the car he feared he was reaching for a weapon. Dunn then used his handgun to shoot four times into the SUV. When the teenagers started to retreat, Dunn chased their vehicle and shot four to five more shots. Jordan was fatally shot in the backseat. Dunn is expected to use the Stand Your Ground defense during his trial, in which he faces the same prosecutor who argued the Trayvon Martin case.
