Dunn and his girlfriend were reportedly returning from his son's wedding when they pulled into Gate gas station at approximately 7:40 p.m. November 23rd.

Davis and several other teens (two 17-year-olds and an 18 year-old) were sitting in an SUV playing music. Dunn, apparently having a problem with the volume, told the teens to turn the music down, leading him and Davis -- who was sitting in the backseat -- to exchange words.

Everything went downhill from there. reports:

"Evidently there were words exchanged between our victim, who was sitting in the backseat of that vehicle, and our suspect," JSO Lt. Rob Schoonover said at a news conference Monday morning. "For whatever reason, our suspect produced a weapon and began firing into the vehicle."

Jordan Davis, a 17-year-old Wolfson High School student, was shot a couple of times, police said.

Investigators said Dunn's girlfriend had gone into the store to buy something at the time and was inside when the shooting happened.
