Verdict in Florida Loud Music Killing

Jurors in Florida found Michael Dunn innocent of murder in the shooting death of Florida teen, Jordan Davis, but guilty of three counts of second-degree attempted murder for getting out of his car and firing 10 times at the Dodge Durango sport utility vehicle in which Davis, 17, was killed. Three other teenagers, the subjects of the attempted murder charges, were in the car but were not struck. Mr. Dunn continued to fire at the car even as it pulled away. 
Michael Dunn reacts to verdict in his murder trial, in which he shot and killed a teenager for playing loud music. Under Florida's Stand Your ground law, the jury apparently felt that Mr. Dunn was sufficiently frightened by the loud music that he felt threatened and was compelled to shoot ten times at the car in which the teenager was a passenger.
