A Florida jury has convicted Michael Dunn of first-degree murder for the killing of 17-year-old Jordan Davis in Jacksonville, Florida.

The jury of seven white men, three white women, one black man, and one black woman deliberated for five-and-a-half hours before returning a verdict in the retrial for the November 2012 killing of the black teenager by Dunn.

On November 23, 2012 Dunn fatally shot Davis outside a Jacksonville, Florida, gas station while he was parked in an SUV with three friends. The 47-year-old Dunn got into an argument with the the teens over loud music and was allegedly threatened by Davis. Dunn shot multiple rounds into the car, hitting only Davis.

In February, Dunn was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and weapons charges. The jury was hung on the first-degree murder charge for the killing of Davis. Jury deliberations in the first trial lasted 32 hours.

Dunn, who is already facing over 60 years for the charges he was convicted of in February, faces an additional charge of life without parole for the first degree murder charge.
His sentencing is scheduled for October 17.

I don't think that it should be first degree murder considering that it wasn't premeditated. He didn't sit around and plan the attack beforehand with that one victim in mind, I do think that he needs to be convicted of 2nd degree murder or manslaughter though.

He made a conscious decision to pull out his gun and repeatedly pull the trigger. How far in advance do you have to make the decision in order to call it premeditated?

Premeditated to me means that you took time to think about and plan before acting on...
