JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Michael Dunn murder trial continued Saturday after jurors elected to hear testimony rather than take the weekend off.
The first person called to the stand Saturday was the
First witness Saturday was Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Detective Andrew Kipple, who described the nine bullet holes found in the SUV Jordan Davis was riding in.
Detective Andrew Kipple testified that there were nine bullet holes in the Dodge Durango, but none in the front of the car.
He also said that three of the bullet holes were in the door where Jordan Davis was sitting and shell casings spread around the area.
"Enlighten the jury how the fragment, considering it was fired from the general location, ended up on the other side of the other parking space," Dunn's attorney Corey Strolla said. "Could have been kicked, thrown around," Detective Kipple replied.
Dunn has claimed that he saw a gun in the SUV the teens were in before he began shooting.
State Attorney Angela Corey asked Kipple, who examined the car both at the scene and again at the crime scene unit garage, if he saw anything resembling a gun.
"I didn't see any weapons," Det. Kipple said.
Friday, the three teens who were in the car with Davis the night of the shooting, said that Davis never attempted to get out of the car that night at the gas station, claiming the child locks were on.
Dunn, 47, has pleaded not guilty to murder. Dunn's attorney, Cory Strolla, told jurors Dunn felt threatened and fired in self-defense. Under Florida law, Dunn had every right not to be a victim, the defense attorney said.
