JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A man accused of killing a teenager during an argument over loud music appeared in court briefly for a hearing in Florida.

State attorney's office spokeswoman Jackie Barnard says Circuit Judge Russell Healey on Monday made no rulings, setting a new hearing for Sept. 8. Jury selection begins Sept. 22 in Jacksonville.

Jurors deadlocked in February on whether Michael Dunn was guilty of killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Georgia. He was convicted on three counts of attempted murder for shooting at three others in the car with Davis in November 2012.

Witnesses said Dunn complained that the music coming from the teens' vehicle was too loud, sparking an argument. Dunn claimed self-defense and said he fired into the vehicle because he feared Davis had a weapon.
