Jurors deadlocked in February on whether Michael Dunn was guilty of killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis. He was convicted on three counts of attempted murder for shooting at three other teens in the car with Davis in November 2012.

Witnesses said Dunn complained that the music coming from the teens' vehicle was too loud, sparking an argument. Dunn claimed self-defense and said he fired into the vehicle because he feared Davis had a weapon.
