JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — An investigator has testified that a Florida man on trial for murder fired nine times at an SUV with four teens in it after an argument over loud music outside a convenience store.

One of the bullets fired into the rear door killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga., in November 2012.

Michael Dunn is charged with first-degree murder, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of shooting or throwing a deadly missile. The 47-year-old's trial continued Saturday in Jacksonville. He says he shot Davis in self-defense.

Veteran Jacksonville Sheriff's Office crime scene investigator Andrew Kipple testified that he found nine bullet holes in the car. Kipple also said he found cups, a cellphone and other items in the car, but nothing that would be considered a weapon.
