Court date set for deadly gas station shooting

A trial date is finally set for a local murder case, that's caught national attention.

The family of gunned down teen, Jordan Davis, is relieved that 46-year-old Michael Dunn will be in court on September 23rd.

He's accused of killing the 17-year-old at a Southside gas station last November, after Dunn told Davis and his friends to turn down their loud music.

Dunn's defense is happy the judge opened up more evidence to them, but they say five months is not enough time to build a case and Dunn is running out of money.

Dunn also told investigators he wasn’t looking for a fight the night Davis was shot and killed at a Southside gas station.

Video footage has just been released of the conversation Dunn had with detectives, just a day after Davis was killed. Dunn says it all started when he asked the teens to turn down their loud rap music.

“I thought I was polite. I asked them nicely. I said, hey, would you guys mind turning that down?”

Dunn claims they did at first but says things began to escalate.

“I thought they were singing you’re going to’ die, EXPLETIVE. That’s when I put my window down and said hey are you talking about me?”

Dunn says he believed one of the teens had a shot gun and he feared for his life.

“It really wasn’t an issue of loud music. It was an issue of them threatening my life.”

In the interview, Dunn admitted to investigators he fired his gun eight times. As the teens drove away, he says he fired again. He told investigators he and his girlfriend left the gas station, went to their hotel and ordered a pizza.

He’s now charged with first-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Davis. He’s currently being held without bond.
