JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man accused of shooting a local teenager at a gas station is facing new charges.

A grand jury indicted Michael Dunn for first-degree murder.

Also added, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of shooting or throwing a deadly missile.

"We are glad to see the Grand Jury and State Attorneys' office have viewed this case as seriously harmful and reprehensible to society as a whole," said John Phillips, the attorney for the family of Jordan Davis. "We hope justice for Jordan is swift."

Dunn is accused of killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis in a confrontation over loud music last month.

The man from Brevard County told police the teens flashed a shotgun out the car window after he told them to turn down their music at the Gate gas station at the corner of Baymeadows and Southside Boulevards. He says he felt threatened and fired.

Since the shooting, the family of Jordan Davis has been on a crusade to get rid of the Stand Your Ground law in Florida.

Dunn will make a first appearance at 9 a.m. Friday.

well I notice no one has said anything about how rude and scary it must have been to hear 4 thugs screaming f words and other foul language all while they listen to and sign along with rap music that encourages the killing of whitey and other criminal acts, funny how lawful of a Beauvoir is that >?

So many hateful, angry, mean people logging in here. Why, WHY is this society so angry about everything? What happened to civility? Whether you like or agree with the activities of another person, are we truly content in justifying senseless murder over & over again?!?! When will the madness end? We must learn to tolerate & be patient with each other. Seek professional counseling if you're THIS angry. Music? Really?? We're co-signing erratic behavior that says: disagree/dislike, confront, kill?!?! STOP IT! I love this country, because we are so different: culturally, musical taste, food, clothing, etc. If ever I feel discomfort, I simply choose to REMOVE MYSELF from the situation, I do not have the RIGHT to force my preference for something onto you. I am free to WALK AWAY! Please stop justifying ignorance & anger. We must do better!

@ nativejax, he has 3 counts of felony " BURGLARY - STRUCTURE OR CONVEYANCE" he got 24 months of probation and has a curfew from 7:00 to 7:00 he has to be home by 7:00 at night. But on that day he was out past 7:00 joyriding with his buddies when this took respect for the law..

WOW if that's true joewW07, then this FAVORTISM of black folk because they feel they are 'entitled' and above the law is alive and well isn't it? No way is Mr Davis going to do that, he probably feels these kids are 'allowed and entitled' to roam around free, break probation and laws because its more 'profittable'. Instead they BLAME the same people these punks are terrorizing in their homes and at the gas pumps, etc. Just another way to get away with terrorism in America if you ask me. What was Stornes on probation for? WHY HAVEN'T YOU TOLD ALL THE STORY actionnews?

The driver Tommie Stornes was on probation and had a curfew, should have been at home instead of joyriding with his underage friends. I do not know why the SAO has not charge him with V.O.P. Plus in my book he should be charge with murder too. He violated his probation and that is a felony. If I was Mr. Davis I would be looking to sue the State of Florida for not supervising this know felon.

forget about lowering the noise... our supreme court just ruled its fine for da bruddas to pump it up ??? "FREE EXPRESSION" they called it ??? well we have our right to "FREE EXPRESSION" as well,, the business end of a weapon ... wonderful,, now this crap that passes as noise rather than music will be assaulting everyone with no desire to listen to it !!! local communities need to enforce noise ordinances & fight the courts ruling,, to the supreme court of the nation if need be !!! 85 decibels sustained max,, should be the limit & outlaw the booming bass !!!

I don't know about the rest of the state but in Clay County we have an ordinance that bans loud music from/in vehicles. It doesn't do any good though as there is no enforcement of this law. It is enforced about as much as the speeding laws and seat belt laws - maybe even less. It is enforced about as much as a driving while talking/texting on a cell phone ordinance would be if passed. By the way, there is nothing wrong with the "stand your ground' law if the authorities would just enforce it as written. Dunn broke that law! Davis did not initiate the confrontation, Dunn did.

NO, THE LAW WAS BROKEN FIRST BY THE DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE WHO BLASTED HIS MUSIC ABOVE THE NOISE ORDINANCE. But I agree, this idiot had a choice to roll up his window and leave instead of confronting them about it. He also had the choice to call the police on them, instead the idiot shot away at the car like an insane lunatic. stupid stupid stupid. If there isn't a video or proof of them with a shot gun, the stand your ground law doesn't apply here and he deserves the max sentence.

Ddukes you couldn't possibly be serious....The cause of this situation was someone looking for a fight because he was drunk and realized how inadequate he has been as a father after attending his son's (that he hasn't been in contact with since who knows when)wedding. It doesn't matter how loud someone's music is that doesn't give someone the right to instigate a confrontation. Mr. Dunn thought he was above the law, which he quickly realized he isn't. What innocent person flees the scene and goes to a hotel, eat the snacks his GF purchased at Gate, goes to sleep, wakes up the next morning, views a newscast that clearly shows he killed someone,and drives home to carry on with his life without calling the police? If he felt the music was too loud, he should have called the long were both cars really going to be at the Gate that the music irritated him so much that he felt he needed to address the situation? At this point he is going to get the fight he was looking for on that Friday night in court. Hopefully he will lose this fight like young Jordan Davis lost his life
