JACKSONVILLE Fla. -- With five months until Michael Dunn's trial, new video evidence and new documents have been released.

Now we are getting our first glimpse at the medical examiner's report for the teenager who prosecutors say was murdered over music.

Action News searched through pages of documents from the medical examiner obtained from the State Attorney's office. The documents suggest 17-year old Jordan Davis died of multiple gunshot wounds to the chest and thigh.


Toxicology reports reveal Davis had no alcohol in his system at the time of the shooting and attorneys say he and the other teens in the SUV were unarmed.

But in newly released interrogation footage, Dunn tells police he thought the teenagers had a gun.

"He goes down on the ground and he puts something up on the thing and then gets out, I thought it was a shotgun or a stick," Dunn told police in the newly-released video.

Dunn's defense team tells Action News they'll be carrying that self-defense claim all the way to his trial.

"He said at least a dozen times to law enforcement that my life was threatened," said Dunn's defense attorney Cory Strolla. "And he only fired the gun when he was in fear for his life, when Mr. Davis went to open the door to get out."

Dunn's attorney also requested five hours of surveillance video and audio from inside the Gate gas station. He believes they'll help support Dunn's self-defense claim.

"There's actual audio on those cameras which we would record the shooting," said Strolla. "It would also record people talking. The state only has about 15 minutes of the video meanwhile police were on scene for well over an hour so I want that video."

Yes, the truth is about to come out. With a lot of video footage with sound. And just because 'some' are 'desensitized' and unafraid of the ongoing thug life here in Jax, doesn't mean everyone is. I think this out of town, idiot Dunn, was pizzing his pants when he saw these young bucks 'standing up to him' and thought they had a gun and he went STUPID and grabbed his. No one wins in this, not the Davis family or decent gun carriers.

This guy is a damn liar. Can't wait till its proven in court. Even his own gf said he didn't say anything about the teen having a gun.
