JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 27 (UPI) -- A South Florida man has been arrested in the death of a Jacksonville teenager who was shot in an argument over loud music, police say.

Jordan Russell Davis, 17, was killed as he and several friends listened to loud music in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot of a Jacksonville convenience store Friday night, the Orlando Sentinel reported Monday.

Police said Michael David Dunn, 45, and his girlfriend parked next to the teenagers' vehicle and asked them to turn down the music. Dunn and Davis exchanged words, and police said Dunn fired into the SUV, striking Davis, who was in the back seat.

As Dunn and his girlfriend drove away, witnesses jotted down his license plate number.

Dunn and his girlfriend spent the night in a Jacksonville hotel. The next morning, they heard someone had died in the shooting and drove back to Dunn's home in Satellite Beach.

Dunn, who is vice president of Dunn & Dunn Data Systems in Vero Beach, was arrested at home Saturday and charged with murder and attempted murder. He is being held without bond.
