Jacksonville news broadcaster news4jax is reporting that a September re-trial date has been set for Michael Dunn, with jury selection to begin September 22.
This past February Dunn was convicted of three counts of attempted murder for shooting at an SUV carrying Jordan Davis and three companions, all black teens. Dunn himself is a middle-aged white male.
The three convictions were for firing shots at the three surviving teens as they fled. Davis was killed by the first three rounds fired, but the jury hung on the associated charge of first degree murder.
Immediately upon the jury returning this finding Florida Attorney General Angela Corey announced that she should would be re-trying Dunn on the murder charge. The date for that re-trial was initially set for early May, but as mentioned above has now been moved to late September.
