iStock/Thinkstock(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) — The Florida jury deliberating murder charges against Michael Dunn asked Thursday to see a foam mannequin that was used in court as a visual aid to show where unarmed teenager Jordan Davis was struck with bullets after an argument over loud music.

The request came on the first full day of deliberations. Jurors began the day by watching surveillance video of the moment that Dunn fired at a parked SUV and killed the teenager.

Prosecutors allege Dunn, 47, fatally shot Davis, 17, in a convenience store parking lot on Nov. 23, 2012 after Dunn asked the teen and his friends to turn down their music.

Dunn testified that he feared for his life and thought Davis was going to kill him, prompting Dunn to pull out his gun and fire nine times.

On Wednesday, the judge gave the jurors a range of charges they can consider against Dunn and the jury reviewed the case for more than three hours before quitting for the night. They resumed Thursday morning.
