Ep 106: The Death of Jordan Davis: The Loud Music Trial

It was Black Friday 2012, and 17-year-old Jordan Davis was sitting with friends in a parked car outside a gas station in Jacksonville, Florida. They were playing loud music, while waiting for their friend, who had gone inside the store. Within minutes, gunshots rang out and Jordan was shot and killed.

At the high-profile trial, Jordan’s killer, 45-year-old Michael Dunn, claimed he feared for his life, after getting into an argument with Jordan over the loud music. But would the evidence support his self-defense claim?
