JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- About 70 Wolfson High School students met at the flag pole before school Tuesday morning to remember a classmate and friend. They stood side-by-side with Jordan Davis' dad, held hands and bowed their heads in prayer for Jordan.
Wolfson High School senior Jordan Davis was killed Friday night at a gas station off of Southside Boulevard. Police say 45-year-old Michael Dunn got into an argument with Jordan and his three friends over their loud music.
"The kids did not get out of the car. The gentleman was in the car and was hollering at them and all of a sudden he pulled a gun on them," said Jordan's father Ron Davis.
According to witnesses, that's when Dunn allegedly opened fire on the SUV full of teens.
According to police he fired eight or nine shots. Seventeen-year-old Jordan was shot. "He just rolled his eyes and laid his head on Leland's shoulder and he just couldn't understand why someone would take a life and shoot as us," says Davis.
Jordan died later at a nearby hospital. No one else was hurt in the shooting.
Jordan's father tells Action News his sons friends are overcome with grief and will always be affected by what happened that night. "Not only did he take my sons life, but he has to realize you have scared these young men going forward," he says.
A memorial for Jordan Davis will take place Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Hardage Giddens Funeral Home on San Jose Blvd.
This week, Dunn pleaded not guilty to the murder charges he's facing. He is currently being held in jail in Brevard County. We are working to find out when he will be transferred to Duval County.
