JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man accused of shooting a teenager after they argued over loud music has captured America's curiosity.

Michael Dunn is charged with the murder of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. His trial begins Monday.

If you want to see it for yourself, a lottery system has been set up. You have to fill out an application, drop it off at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, and your name will be chosen randomly.

However, the number of seats available has yet to be determined.

Chief Michelle Cook with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said, "What we have to take into consideration is both the members of the defendant's family and the victim's family."

Additional officers will be on duty to manage what could be chaos outside the courthouse. But exactly how many officers, and at what cost, has yet to be determined.

A city task force did spend $115 to set up an website about the trial.  You can find spectator applications there.

Part that does not make sense to me. You just got shot at by some nut case with gun. Why do you drive 2 blocks away stop see your friend bleeding to death and instead of rushing to hospital decide to return to the scene of the crime? Only reason to do that would be to get rid of some kind of evidence. The driver and those men need to be put on the stand BEFORE MAN AND GOD. Pastors should explain to them while they might get away with lying under oath to man they can forget lying under oath to God and expect to ever enter heaven. There was something in that SUV that those young men did not want police seeing. Worth getting rid of while their friend lays dying and bleeding with a hospital less than 2 blocks away. DUNN for his part knows if he discharged his gun in a city in situation like that he needed to report it. Not try to get away with it. As far as I am concerned both parties are guilty. This turn the music up loud is forcing people to hear music of someone else. Shows lack of respect for others. Maybe all the country and pop people should get supper bass added to their cars and start blasting it loud like rap. Then we can have music wars at stop lights with each side forcing their culture and their music on the other without respect for each other.
