Witnesses to a November fatal shooting outside a Southside convenience store and one person in the SUV fired at can be heard in 911 calls released Monday by the state attorney's office.

Prosecutors are expecting to use the calls in their case against Michael Dunn, who is accused of firing into an SUV full of teenagers at a Gate gas station, killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis (pictured, below).

"How many shots did you hear?" a 911 operator asked.

"Oh, shhhh. It was like pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. More than six, then it stopped for a second," the caller said.

One caller said he had no idea who was behind the shooting.

"Please can you bring help," he said.

Police arrested 45-year-old Dunn the next day on a charge of first-degree murder. Dunn claimed to officers he was defending himself and his attorney says it may be a stand-your-ground case.

Court records obtained by Channel 4 show that Jacksonville Sheriff's Office investigators found five 9mm casings at the parking lot, which prosecutors say came from Dunn's gun. When Dunn was arrested at his Brevard County home, police reported finding a 9mm semiautomatic handgun loaded with five bullets. A search of Dunn's car turned up another 9mm bullet casing.

According to the list provided to prosecutors, also in Dunn's car were eight live rounds in a magazine, a silencer and nun chucks.

Dunn's attorney, Corry Strolla, said the nun chucks and silencer were just novelty items -- collectibles of sort -- and they were not used in the killing at all.

Investigators also went through the SUV that Davis was in when he was shot. Items found included keys, jewelry, change and a pocket knife.

Dunn's attorney says his client saw someone in the SUV pull out what looked to be a shotgun and point it his way -- prompting him to fire in self-defense. According to the evidence list, no firearm was in the vehicle that Dunn fired into.
