Charges Upgraded To First Degree Murder In Shooting Of Jordan Davis

Michael Dunn, a white software developer, is now charged with first degree murder in the shooting of Florida teen Jordan Davis.

Dunn asked the teens to turn down the volume of the music, but, his attorney said, the teens turned up the volume, threatened Dunn and brandished a shotgun. Dunn grabbed a pistol from the glove compartment of his car and opened fire, before driving away, authorities say. Police said no weapon was found on the teens.

Dunn was taken into custody at his oceanfront townhome about 170 miles south of Jacksonville the day after the shooting.
