      Fla. man guilty of lesser counts in music shooting

      JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A jury's inability to agree on a murder charge will give prosecutors and defense attorneys fodder for their next moves in the case of a Florida teen fatally shot after an argument over loud music.

      Forty-seven-year-old Michael Dunn was convicted Saturday of attempted murder for shooting into a carful of teenagers after the argument, but jurors couldn't agree on the most serious charge of first-degree murder. A mistrial was declared on the murder charge.

      State Attorney Angela Corey said her office would consider seeking a retrial of Michael Dunn on a first-degree murder charge.

      Defense attorney Cory Strolla said he plans to appeal based on several issues.

      Dunn was charged with fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis, of Marietta, Ga., in 2012 after the argument outside a Jacksonville convenience store.
