JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The family of Jordan Davis said they will continue to wait for justice for Jordan, who would be turning 19 years old on Sunday if he was alive.

A jury found Michael Dunn guilty on three counts of attempted second-degree murder for shooting at Jordan's friends, but deadlocked on the murder charge related to the death of the Wolfson High School teenager.

Lucia McBath and Ronald Davis spoke to reporters about 30 minutes after the verdicts came down.

"We will continue to wait for justice for Jordan," said a teary-eyed Lucia McBath, Jordan's mother.

"He's going to learn that he has to be remorseful for the killing of my son," said Ronald Davis.

Jordan was shot and killed during an argument about loud music at a Gate gas station on the Southside in November 2012.

Dunn claimed self-defense when he fired into an SUV carrying Jordan and his friends.

Everyone has an opinion, fortunately Dunn will die in prison. Vilifying the victim won't change that fact.

I agree, Papakilo, I suffer from extreme migraines that loud music and lights set them off without warning. My 2 questions is still 1- Why were the Martins and the Davis boys, who were BOTH underage, not being supervised by ANY of these parents? And 2, Why do they THINK if they scream loud enough for MORE gun regulations on law abiding citizens that the black on black murders by illegal guns will stop? It won't, it will only leave law abiding people open to be killed by these same THUG minded people that so full of hate they are out for blood anyway. Because everyone know's if either one of these boys had been killed by one of their own, Cory's fat, lying face would be on TV posing for the camera's.

When is the city going to START enforcing the loud noise/music problem? There have been too many teens on the road and in gas stations with radios turned too loud and very sarcastic when asked to turn them down. This is not an isolated problem, it is one the city has ignored too long and, although it is something the police could enforce, they don't. Who counts in the city, outsiders shouting outside the court house or the honest citizens in Jacksonville?

The jury was deadlocked because Angela Corey over charged Dunn. He is guilty, but not of 1st degree murder. Justice is working but not the way Corrine Brown and the clown with the megaphone want it to work.

It's a shame that this incident happened,no one wins. It's also a shame how the press has made this a world wide story, when if fact if Dunn was black this incidint would be found on the middle pages of the newpaper and would never even be mentioned anywhere else. If Dunn was black, and Davis was white, we would probably never hear about it. Justice needs to be served through the jury system and not by demonstrators on the street.

So much for Ronald Davis's comment before the verdict that he would respect whatever the final verdict was......
