White Man in Florida Kills Black Teen over Loud Music [UPDATE]

Details are still sketchy at this point, but Dunn allegedly then pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the SUV. One of the bullets hit Davis. The teen was taken to a nearby hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

Dunn was arrested Saturday morning at his home in Satellite Beach. According to First Coast News, Dunn is the president of software development of Dunn & Dunn Systems Incorporated.

Dunn’s attorney Robin Lemonidis told CNN that her client saw a gun barrel through the car’s window and that Davis and his friends had directed a string of profanities at him. That’s why he apparently pulled out a gun and killed Davis.

“When all the evidence has been flushed out, I believe that it will be extremely clear that Mr. Dunn acted as any responsible firearm owner would have under the same circumstances,” says Lemonidis.

There were no guns found inside the teens’ SUV, according to The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department.

Dunn and his girlfriend then fled the scene. Lemonidis claims they were worried that they had encountered gang members.

Because loud music + black + male + teen = gang = life-threatening situation?

Thirteen-Year Old Faces First Degree Murder and Sexual Abuse Charges

The real crime here? Cristian Fernandez’s entire life.

Fernandez was born in Miami in 1999 to Biannela Susana, who was 12. The 25-year-old father received 10 years’ probation for sexually assaulting her.

Two years later, both mother and son went to foster care after authorities in South Florida found the toddler, filthy and naked, walking in the street at 4 a.m. near the motel where his grandmother did drugs.

In 2007, when Fernandez was 8, the Department of Children and Families investigated a report that he was sexually molested by an older cousin. Officials said other troubling incidents were reported, including claims that he he [sic] killed a kitten, simulated sex with classmates and masturbated at school.

In October 2010, Fernandez and his mother were living in Hialeah, a Miami suburb, with his mother’s new husband. Fernandez suffered an eye injury so bad that school officials sent him to the hospital where he was examined for retinal damage. Fernandez told officers that his stepfather had punched him. When officers went to the family’s apartment, they found the stepfather dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
