Victim's friends testify in 'loud music' murder trial

The so-called "Loud Music" murder trial entered its second day Friday, in which a Florida man faces first-degree murder for shooting and killing an African-American 17-year-old.

Michael Dunn, 47, claims he fired in self-defense, after an alleged argument over the volume of music blasting from an SUV. Dunn's defense team also says the teen brandished a weapon.

The case bears a number of similarities with the George Zimmerman trial last year.

Three other passengers the victim was riding with gave virtually identical accounts of what happened during testimony Friday.

Prosecutor: Do you recall anything that Jordan Davis said to the defendant?

Tevin Thompson: Yes sir.

Prosecutor: What was that?

Tevin Thompson: F you.

Prosecutor: What did you see the driver of the other car do when Jordan Davis said "yeah, I'm talking to you"
Leland Brunson: He reached into his glove compartment.

Prosecutor: And what did the driver do with the gun after you looked at it?
Tommie Stornes: To my recollection, he started to fire.

OutFront: Michael Skolnik, editor-in-chief of GlobalGrind.com, and Janet Johnson, a criminal defense attorney in Jacksonville, Florida.
