JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The attorney for the man police say pulled the trigger in a deadly shooting outside a gas station Friday that claimed the life of a Wolfson High Student is now disputing the statement from police that the teens were not armed.
Attorney Robin Lemonidis said for the first time Tuesday that the teens threatened to kill 45-year-old Michael Dunn and one of them flashed a shotgun after they allegedly got upset that Dunn asked them to turn down their music.
