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.
