Another Unarmed Black Teen Killed in Florida 

The shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis in November drew comparisons to the Trayvon Martin tragedy and again called into question Florida's controversial "Stand Your Ground" law. After asking Davis and his friends to turn down their music, Michael David Dunn fired into their car, killing Davis. Dunn says he fired his gun at the Jacksonville gas station because he felt threatened by Dunn. (Photos: CNN)
