JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jurors deciding the fate of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a teen after an argument over loud music have asked a judge if they can reach a verdict on some counts but not others.

The 12 jurors in the trial of Michael Dunn asked their question Friday as they approached the 20th hour of deliberations over three days.

Judge Russell Healey told them the answer is “yes.”

Dunn is charged with first-degree murder for fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012.

Dunn claims he shot the Marietta, Ga., teen in self-defense. But prosecutors told jurors Dunn shot the teen because he felt disrespected by Davis during an argument over loud music.
