A Florida grand jury indicted Michael Dunn on one count of first degree murder and three counts of attempted murder after Dunn killed 17 year-old Jordan Russell Davis following an argument over loud music. The 45 year-old white business man fired eight or nine times at an SUV that Davis and three of his friends were sitting in, striking Davis twice. Dunn claims he felt “threatened” and that he acted in self-defense, a claim that suggests Dunn will invoke Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law which often enables killers to get off scot free.
