MARIETTA, Ga. -- A week and a day after his murder, Jordan Davis was laid to rest Saturday in his home state of Georgia.

The 17-year-old Wolfson senior was killed November 23rd, police say by a 45-yr-old man who argued with the teen over loud music .

Classmates Samantha Williams and Bre Anderson attended Saturday's service, hoping it would help them cope with their pain.

"Me and Jordan, we were really close," cried Williams. "It's just so hard because I miss him so much."

Anderson said, "There was nobody who didn't like Jordan. Everybody was friends with Jordan."

Jordan's service was described at fitting and proper. His death was described as senseless, by family friend Mark Duquesney. "If that guy didn't have a gun, he would be alive today. Because it wasn't necessary," he said.

Jordan's casket was loaded into a hearse, and driven to the Kennesaw Memorial Park Cemetery.

"He's a really good person. He didn't deserve to die," said Williams.

Jordan's accused killer, Michael Dunn, is currently being held in the Duval County Jail with no bond. He faces second degree murder charges. He says he fired his weapon in self defense. He'll be in court December 19th.
