Man Charged in Loud Music Killing Takes Stand

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Florida man charged with fatally shooting a 17-year-old boy after an argument over loud music says he thought he saw the barrel of a gun from a neighboring vehicle pointed at him in the moments before he fired his weapon.

Michael Dunn testified Tuesday that he feared for his life.

Dunn is charged with first-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty and says he acted in self-defense when he shot 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga., outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012.

Dunn says he and his fiancee pulled into a spot next to an SUV where music with a "thumping" bass was playing.

He says he asked the three teens in the SUV to turn down the music, and they complied for a bit, then turned it back up.

He says one started yelling expletives at him.
