CNN is reporting that the Jacksonville, Fla. jury deciding the fate of Michael Dunn, who is charged with shooting a 17-year-old boy to death after an argument over loud music being played in a vehicle, has reached a verdict on four of the five counts.


The judge has reportedly asked them to continue deliberating.

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.
