Updated: Fri. Oct. 17, 4:30 p.m. ET: Twitter celebrated Michael Dunn’s sentence Friday in the shooting death of unarmed teen Jordan Davis over “loud music.” He was sentenced to life plus 105 years by a Florida judge.
The sentence comes in the aftermath of the shooting of unarmed Ferguson, Mo., teen Mike Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson.
Here is how Twitter responded:
Michael Dunn was sentenced to life without parole Friday in the shooting 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, CNN reports.
“This case demonstrates that our justice system does work,” Duval County Judge Russell Healey said before the sentencing, the news site says.
CNN reports the following:
Dunn, 47, was convicted of first-degree murder this month for shooting into an SUV full of teenagers at a Jacksonville, Florida, gas station after an argument over loud music from the teens’ vehicle.
Dunn for the first time apologized to Davis’ family before he was sentenced.
“I want the Davis family to know I truly regret what happened. I’m sorry for their loss,” he said. “If I could roll back time and do things differently, I would.”
Davis’ parents, Ron Davis and Lucia MacBath, were in court for the sentencing.
Dunn fired into the vehicle because he thought Davis had a weapon, but prosecutors showed that he was the aggressor and pointed out that he kept firing even after the teens fled.
