Motorcycle ride honors Jordan Davis
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A bike ride was organized by the family of Jordan Davis on Sunday. The anniversary marked two years since the 17-year-old Wolfson High School student was shot and killed at a Southside gas station.
Ron Davis, Jordan Davis' father, said the ride was not a memorial. Instead, it was a celebration of a life well lived.
"People know it all across this country, and we know that the name of Jordan Davis stands for something good," said Ron Davis.
Jordan Davis was shot and killed by Michael Dunn after an argument over loud music. The dark moment is forever etched in the mind of Ron Davis, who has taken the tragedy and turned it into action. He now speaks across the country as a gun safety advocate.
Harold Mcleod was inspired by the story and helped organize the community ride.
"It touched me," said Mcleod. "I mean, it could be me, my little brother, I mean, anybody's little brother, so you know, I mean, we have to start somewhere in helping out."
Dunn was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus 90 years.
For Jordan's family, it's hard fought justice they say still hurts two years later.
