Officers testify in Fla. shooting over loud music
Question of the Day
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Police officers testified Friday that a Georgia teen died almost immediately after a Florida man fired repeatedly into his vehicle following an argument over loud music outside a convenience store.
Officers Robert Holmes and Dawn Valentine of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said they found 17-year-old Jordan Davis slumped against another young man in the backseat of the SUV.
Blood was coming out of the back of the teen from Marietta, Ga., Holmes said.
Davis‘ friend, Tevin Thompson, who was sitting in the front passenger seat at the time of the shooting, testified that he and his friends were playing music loudly in their SUV while they waited for another friend to make a purchase inside the convenience store.
The SUV’s driver, Tommie Stornes, returned to the vehicle, and before getting into the driver’s seat, he did a little dance to the music, Thompson said. Dunn and Davis continued arguing, and Thompson said he heard Dunn say, “‘Are you talking to me?’”
