JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Police officers have testified that a Georgia teen died almost immediately after a Florida man fired repeatedly into his vehicle following an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store.

Officers Robert Holmes and Dawn Valentine of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said Friday they found 17-year-old Jordan Davis slumped against another young man in the backseat of the SUV.

Holmes says blood was coming out of the back of the teen from Marietta, Ga.

Forty-seven-year-old Michael Dunn is on trial for Davis' death. He is pleading not guilty and says he shot Davis in self-defense.
