Dunn juror No. 8 to Ken Amaro: 'We tried'

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- One of two African-American jurors in the Michael Dunn trial tells First Coast News she's been reflecting on the "challenging" role since the verdict came Saturday night. She is 21, a first-time juror and was one of the youngest on the panel.

She has spoken with several First Coast News staffers, including On Your Side's Ken Amaro over the past several days. She said she has struggled with whether or not to share her experience and said, "I was just looking for justice."

She was interviewed on camera by CNN.

"I never once thought about, 'oh this was a black kid, this was a white guy," she said.

She said she would like to meet the parents of Jordan Davis, who was shot by Michael Dunn in November of 2012. A mistrial was declared on the charge of first-degree murder in Jordan's death, but Dunn was convicted on 4 other charges. He faces up to 60 years in prison at his sentencing.
