Fla. Man Guilty Of Lesser Counts In Music Shooting

Posted: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -A 47-year-old software developer has been convicted of attempted murder for shooting into a car full of teenagers after an argument over what he called their "thug music," but jurors couldn't agree on the most serious charge of first-degree murder.
    
A mistrial was declared on the murder charge that Michael Dunn faced in the fatal shooting of one of the black teens. The 12 jurors found him guilty of three counts of attempted second-degree murder and a count of firing into an occupied car.
    
Dunn was charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis in 2012 after the argument over loud music coming from the parked SUV occupied by Davis and three friends outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Dunn, who's white, had described the music to his fiancee as "thug music."
    
A sentencing date will be set at a hearing next month. Each attempted second-degree murder charge carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison, while the fourth charge carries a maximum of 15.
    
State Attorney Angela Corey says her office plans to retry Dunn on a first-degree murder charge.
