JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A judge has asked jurors to continue deliberating on the fate of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music because the panel expressed difficulty.
On their fourth day of deliberations, the jurors told Judge Russell L. Healey that they haven't been able to reach a unanimous verdict on the first-degree murder charge against Michael Dunn. They said they've reached a verdict on four other counts against him.
Healey asked the jury to keep trying.
Dunn is charged with first-degree murder for fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. Dunn claims he shot the teen in self-defense. Prosecutors told jurors Dunn shot the teen because he felt disrespected by Davis during an argument over loud music.
