Saturday Funeral for Marietta Teen

A man faces charges of murder and attempted murder following the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis in Jacksonville, Fla.

Funeral arrangements have been set for a Marietta teen who was shot and killed Friday in Jacksonville, Fla. after an argument over loud music.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis and several other teenagers were sitting in an SUV in a convenience store parking lot when 45-year-old Michael David Dunn and his girlfriend pulled into the store’s lot.

Dunn reportedly asked the teens to turn down the music playing in their vehicle. After he and Davis exchanged words, Dunn shot Davis eight or nine times, striking Davis twice, authorities said.

The newspaper reported that Dunn was arrested at his home Saturday on charges of murder and attempted murder.

According to WSB TV, Davis split time at his mother’s home in Marietta and in Jacksonville with his father. His family will receive friends today at a Jacksonville funeral home.

Visitation here in Marietta has been set for Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. at West Cobb Funeral Home and Crematory.

Davis’ funeral will be held Saturday at noon at Trinity Chapel Church of God in Powder Springs; he will lie in state at the church one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow at Kennesaw Memorial Park in Marietta.
