Michael David Dunn has been indicted by a grand jury on a charge of first-degree murder in the Nov. 23 shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

The State Attorney’s Office said Thursday night it would not seek the death penalty in the case. If found guilty, Dunn would be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Dunn, who was indicted Thursday, had been charged with second-degree murder.

In Florida, a first-degree murder charge can only be approved by a grand jury.

Authorities said Dunn, 46, stopped at the Gate Food Post near Baymeadows Road where he opened fire on a Dodge Durango with four teenagers inside after complaining of their loud music and saying he saw a gun. Davis was killed.

Also added were three counts of attempted murder because he might have shot the other three teenagers.

The Davis family is having a vigil Saturday at Friendship Fountain.
