by GINA LOUDON
Angela Corey, the special prosecutor who found a way to take the George Zimmerman case to trial before seeing her work collapse with a not guilty verdict from the jury, now is taking on another high-profile case that is sure to be the next Trayvon Martin media frenzy.
Michael Dunn is charged with the murder of a black teenager in a gas station parking lot in Jacksonville, Fla. After an argument about loud music, Dunn allegedly fired shots into the car containing four teens after he claims he saw spotted a shotgun.
Jordan Davis, 17, was killed when he was struck allegedly by some of the eight shots that Dunn fired into the SUV.
Police never found the gun that Dunn claims he saw before he opened fire.
According to Dunn and other witnesses, after the shooting, the red Dodge Durango pulled out of the parking lot and stopped. The passenger and driver exited the car, got back in, then pulled back into the gas station parking lot.
Witnesses who called 911 may have given a clue on where the missing gun went.
The man on the phone told the dispatcher he saw two of the young men exit the SUV after the shots rang out.
“I don’t know if they were trying to stash something in the car or look for something or what, but it looked like they got out, kind of brushed themselves off, and then they got back in.”
The surrounding crime scene was not searched until several days after the shooting.
