JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Defense attorney Cory Strolla wasted no time in trying to cast doubt over how the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office handled the investigation during Day 6 of the Michael Dunn trial.
"So you're saying those dumpsters were searched four days after the shooting is that correct?" said Strolla.
"That is correct," said Detective Marc Musser.
Strolla has argued that Dunn shot Jordan Davis in self-defense after he said Davis threatened to kill him and showed a weapon.
According to Strolla, the JSO never investigated the possibility of another weapon.
"Did you ever go into the other plaza where the red SUV had left after the shooting? Did you ever go investigate the plaza?" said Strolla.
"Me personally, no," said Musser.
"That night?" said Strolla.
"No," said Musser.
"Did you ever have any of your evidence technicians go to the plaza to investigate where the red SUV had left that night?" said Strolla.
"No I did not," said Musser.
The JSO maintains no weapons were ever found in the red SUV the teens were in or in the surrounding areas.
"Did you have any reason to search the plaza parking lot the night of the shooting?" said John Guy, assistant state attorney.
"We had no evidence that there was going to be anything of evidentiary value in that parking lot," said Musser.
According to Musser, a helicopter was also flown over the area days later to search if any weapons were thrown on the roofs or bushes at the nearby businesses. Nothing was found.
More testimony continues Monday.
