Michael Dunn Sentenced to Life In Prison For the Murder of Jordan Davis Over Loud Music Dispute




A Florida man was sentenced to life in prison without parole Friday in the killing of an African-American teenager outside a Jacksonville convenience store.

Michael Dunn, 47, of Satellite Beach, was convicted of first-degree murder for shooting Jordan Davis, 17, over the loud rap music coming out of his SUV in November 2012.
Circuit Judge Russell Healey handed down the sentence after the prosecution declined to seek the death penalty.

"Mr. Dunn, your life is effectively over," Healey said, according to The Associated Press. "What is sad is that this case exemplifies that our society seems to have lost its way."
Prosecutors say Dunn, a white software engineer, fired 10 shots into the Dodge Durango carrying Davis, of Marietta, Ga., and three other teens. Three bullets struck Davis.
