JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Sheriff deputies in Brevard County tell Action News they have arrested the suspect in Friday's fatal shooting at a gas station. Michael Dunn, 45, was taken into custody on outstanding warrants of murder and attempted murder.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office homicide unit was called to the Gate gas station near Baymeadows Road and Southside Boulevard about 7:40 p.m. Friday after several shots were fired in the parking lot.

Wolfson High School Senior Jordan Davis, 17, was riding with friends when he was shot. He was taken to UF & Shands Jacksonville where he died. 

Police say the people inside the red SUV got in a confrontation with Dunn who was in a dark sedan over loud music.

Police believe the alleged shooter and victim did not know each other. No one else was hurt. JSO detectives are interviewing Dunn in Brevard County.

Typical Jewsmedia... gonna take it national? Check. Gonna get Jackson and Sharpton involved? Check. Gonna lie about the real reason this guy pulled a gun (the gun in the car they quickly got rid of?) Check. Gonna use this to try to destroy the second amendment? Check. Gonna demonize "whitey" because he is "evil" and "racist?" Check. If this had been the other way around and a black killed a white, you would hush it up as you normally do. Oh, yeah.. blacks killing whites is "incendiary" while stories of whites killing or beating blacks is not? How about your incitement of the LA Riots with your edited tape of Rodney King? How about the spike in black on white violence after some Mexican killed a black (in self defense) in Florida and you called him white? You have to dig for those stories, though... of course you would never take them national. We know your game, Jew. We know who the real enemy is.

Ok people can now get murdered over how their music Is and what kind of music they are listening too. Whatever first he was a teenager most teens play their music loud , he was not out getting trouble. People have the right to play whatever they want with out the fear of losing their lives. He was a child you can look at him and tell that. But the suspect had another options instead of shooting, how about leave and go to another gas station no one held him at gun point to stay there and another thing how long are you at a gas station where the music really made you that made you murdered a child. That Guy had issues before and that was something he is using to blame why he shoot and killed a minor. No excuses in eyes he belong underneath the prison.

grammaw001 I agree with you EXCEPT it wasn't JUST the type of music these kids were listening to, it was HOW LOUD it was. Have you listened to some of this 'music' lately? I made the mistake of getting a ride with a white female coworker and she had the most vulgar rap blaring so loud I had to crouch down in the seat.If any of MY granddaughters had heard that FILTH I would have exploded. It was so filthy. I didn't know this kind of extremely explicit stuff was out there and is even listened to, much less cranked up for others to have to hear it. The need to CRANK up the volume for young kids is understandable, but THEY KNOW they are forcing OTHERS to hear it. They open themselves up against OTHER PEOPLE'S 'reactions'. A simple phone call to JSO after getting their tag number would have worked. I bet you not many parent's out there know EXACTLY what their kids really listen to behind their backs. And if they found out they would be in shock. This shooter deserves the harshest conviction a judge can give him, but HOW the loud mouth panthers are trying to make it a racial thing is beyond me. This was some jerk taking the law into his own hands because he didn't like the music. And even if he was predjudice, HE's LOCKED UP, and he most likely will get life, because it was not WHY do the idiot punk panthers have to even open their stupid mouths? I will not tolerate my innocent children/grandchildren having to listen to filth, but there are A LOT of other reasons why kids or ANYBODY should not blare their music. 1-It causes deafness when your older, and tinnitus. 2- It causes people's heads to explode in full grown migraines INSTANTLY and then they suffer hours of extreme pain. 3-IT DISTURBS the peace and is INCONSIDERATE of others, just to name a few. ALL PARENT'S SHOULD teach their kids this, and absolutely KNOW who they are running with that would behave this way, in my opinion.

Are some of you people crazy>?????????????killing someone over music. Come on. No wonder this world is going to hell. My sympathy goes out to the family of the victim. He certainly didn't deserve that. I am so afraid for my grandchildren growing up with people like you. You don't know this young man and neither do I,but it doesn't matter what color he was--it should not have happened. FYI I am a 60 year old white woman who sees people for how they act, not what color they are or what kind of music they listen to. Hats off to Duval Co SO for their quick arrest.

I don't think this Country is 'caught in a spiral of hate, bigotry and intolerants' for EACH OTHER...but for what each other 'does'. In the seventies, 'rock and roll' was censored by the Government. Today MOST (not all)rap, R&B, is NOT. I truly believe if young people want to force others to listen to the filthy garbage they call' music'...they set themselves and everyone with them, up for some kind of condemnation. But NO ONE has right to pull a gun out and start shooting like a mad man. If ENOUGH people would just call the police for this type of noise and disturbing the peace, etc...maybe they will learn to turn down the volume....maybe. My prayers for all involved in this senseless loss of such a young life, who seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and had no control at all of the situation.

To the family and friends of Jordan Lewis…My deepest sympathies for your loss. Our Country, and this world is caught in a spiral of hate, bigotry, and intolerants. Our demise is near…And my heart bleeds for the loss.

Many of you who have posted your comments are adults. It's appalling that adults think that youth all listen to racist, thuggish music. Not once have you considered your nephew, niece, or child that could have easily been playing loud music. Lets be honest, youth, black and white, play loud music, whether they are coming from the beach or just coming from a party. It's life. What saddens me is that this young man, who happened to be sitting in the REAR of the vehicle was shot. We all know if you are sitting in the passenger seat, you do not have any real control on what occurs in the front of the car. As adults, we need to really come to terms on our racist ideas of our youth. We should all check ourselves on the things we say, how we pre-judge others, and how we discriminate because we've never taken the time to know another group of people. We're the adults and we should start acting as such. I'm sure one of his classmates will be reading our comments; his parents will read our comments; his teachers will read our comments, the least we can do is offer our condolences and ask for strength and peace during this difficult time for his family, classmates, and friends. Let's grow up and post mature comments that are expected from adults.

Wow, I think you all read a different story then I did. No where does it say that the victem who got shot was the one that had the loud music on. Just perhaps the victem was the one who complained about the music and the shooter was the offending noise maker. Either way you have to wonder what our world has come to when someone is killed over loud music.
