“This case demonstrates that our justice system does work,” Duval County Judge Russell Healey said before the sentencing, the news site says.
“Mr. Dunn, your life is effectively over,” Healey added. “What is sad… is that this case exemplifies that our society seems to have lost its way.”
CNN reports the following:
Dunn, 47, was convicted of first-degree murder this month for shooting into an SUV full of teenagers at a Jacksonville, Florida, gas station after an argument over loud music from the teens’ vehicle.
“I want the Davis family to know I truly regret what happened. I’m sorry for their loss,” he said. “If I could roll back time and do things differently, I would.”
Davis’ parents, Ron Davis and Lucia MacBath, were in court for the sentencing.
Dunn fired into the vehicle because he thought Davis had a weapon, but prosecutors showed that he was the aggressor and pointed out that he kept firing even after the teens fled. No weapon was found in the vehicle.
