JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man who was convicted of attempted murder for shooting another man, over his loud music, ordered while in jail that his guns and ammunition be sold to pay for his defense.
Michael Dunn made the statement to his father in a series of taped phone calls and visits released Tuesday by prosecutors. Like all jail inmates, the 47-year-old Dunn was told the calls and visits would be recorded, with the exception of those involving attorneys.
Dunn was convicted Saturday of three counts of attempted murder, but the jury deadlocked on whether he murdered 17-year-old Jordan Davis.
Dunn claimed that he fired two volleys of shots into a car full of teenagers only after Davis threatened him. Dunn also said he thought he saw a shotgun in the car.
Davis was killed by the first barrage of gunfire. None of his three friends were struck by the second.
