Brevard suspect pleads not guilty in slaying of Wolfson student

Source: The Florida Times-Union

Michael David Dunn will be brought from Brevard County to Jacksonville after entering a not-guilty plea to charges of murder and attempted murder in the Friday shooting death of a 17-year-old student at a Jacksonville gas station.

Dunn, 45, of Satellite Beach, waived extradition and should be en route back to Jacksonville before Thursday to face charges in the death of Jordan Russell Davis, according to Lt. Tod Goodyear, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

A gun collector in Jacksonville for his son’s wedding, Dunn told police he felt “threatened” after an argument with the Wolfson High student over loud music coming from a sports-utility vehicle parked next to him at the Gate station at 8251 Southside Blvd. Davis was in the back seat when “there were words exchanged,” followed by gunfire at 7:40 p.m., said Jacksonville homicide Lt. Rob Schoonover.

The couple drove off after Dunn told her he had “fired at these kids,” Schoonover said. They went to their hotel, then returned to Brevard County when they learned what had happened from local news.

1. And reported at Gawker ...

<snip>

Dunn, a Satellite Beach resident, was arrested Saturday at his home on charges of murder and attempted murder. He was booked into Brevard County jail, where he is being held without bail.

He is expected to be returned to Jacksonville shortly after pleading not guilty through his attorney Robin Lemonidis.

"It will be very clear that Mr. Dunn acted very responsibly and as any responsible firearms owner would have acted under these circumstances," Lemonidis told reporters, but would not elaborate.

3. Loud music = death?

That could have been my son or your son. And he acted responsibly? His girlfriend got in the car after hearing a gun go off and they take off leaving the crime site. Glad someone thought to get his license plate number.

14. Not just that, they left the county.

Girlfriend should be charged too with aiding a fugitive.

4. Who fires into a car, and then drives back to their hotel?

If he did 'feel threatened', then he would have called the police himself, at once. "They went to their hotel, then returned to Brevard County", must surely be "got away as quickly as they could, hoping they could somehow not be identified". What "they learned what had happened from local news" is that the police knew who they were.

6. This is just awful.

IMHO, Mr. Dunn fled the scene because he was drunk and the girlfriend may have been under the influence as well. I think they stopped at the store to get a bottle to ride with back to Satellite Beach, which is a good ways away from Jacksonville. If this man had any sense other than his sense of entitlement, he would just plead guilty and do his time. My heart goes out to the victim's family and his friends who witnessed this cold blooded murder.

7. Fla Stand Your Ground (against loud music)

Law surfaces once more with tragic results. Or anyway what this idiot imagines is his right under the law which has been described as dangerous because of its ambiguity. The review done by the Fla legislature just concluded that there is no problem with this law.

8. The guy was in his car

If the music bothers you, drive away. No need to even have a conversation. The shooter is obviously unhinged.

9. Who complains about loud music in a parking lot

You are going to leave in a few minutes? THAT shows what a little sociopath he is. He felt he was entitled to talk to a young man that way, just because he was playing music too loud... like most teens.

10. Update: Dunn allegedly saw a shotgun on the backseat

Attorney for suspect in teen's death says client saw shotgun, shot in self-defense

The attorney for Michael David Dunn, charged in the shooting death of Jordan Russell Davis, has a dramatically different story to tell about what happened Friday night at the Gate store on Southside Boulevard.

Robin Lemonidis of Melbourne said Tuesday night that someone in the red sport-utility vehicle that was next to her client’s car pulled a shotgun on him and that he fired in self defense.

“He acted the way any responsible firearms owner would act in a similar situation because a shotgun was aimed at him,” she said.

Jacksonville police said no weapon was found in the car.

“How hard did they look,” Lemonidis said. “Have they done an entire search?”


Lemonidis, who will be in Jacksonville Wednesday when her client makes his first appearance in a Jacksonville courtroom, said Dunn is “devastated that anyone was harmed in this instance.”

12. I've certainly felt similar urges before, so I'm not entirely unsympathetic.

Damn teenagers (and other excessively loud people) should understand a little more about consideration for other people. And anyway, modern technology allows one to destroy one's own eardrums without even impacting anyone else, so this whole thing was completely unnecessary.

I hope people will draw the appropriate conclusions from this incident.

13. I AM entirely unsympathetic...

It's not like the teens parked the Durango on his front doorstep at midnight--He was at a gas station in a public space. God forbid Dunn actually behave like a goddamned adult and ignore it for a couple of minutes, or find one of a thousand different ways he could have handled the situation that DON'T result in ending someone's life!

There is NO excusing this, at all...

16. Sorry to kick this thread,

but blaming the victims is pretty fucking vile.

You probably also think that women who wear revealing clothing are "asking for it".

But then I wouldn't have gotten to enjoy the outraged replies.
