"Jury in Florida loud music trial voted 9-3 to convict"

From Reuters:

Valerie said the 12-member jury realized within its first hour of deliberations that it would not be able to reach a unanimous verdict on the first-degree murder charge because two jurors initially, and three in the final vote, believed Dunn was justified in shooting under Florida's self-defense laws.

. . .

"We all believed there was another way out. Another option," Valerie said.

Dunn could have avoided the altercation by rolling up his car window, ignoring the taunting or moving his car to another parking space, she added.
