Gate employee led police to Dunn

As shots rang out the night Jordan Davis was shot and killed, the 911 calls poured in from a Gate gas station on the Southside.
It was a Gate employee who saw Michael Dunn's car speed out and gave police valuable information. Dunn is charged in the killing.
"The person firing has left, but we did get a license number," the employee told a 911 dispatcher. "The person driving the vehicle was the one shooting out of the vehicle at somebody else, but we don't know what happened."
"It was like, 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,' and then it stopped for a second and you heard, 'Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,'" one witness said in a 911 call.
Then comes the frantic call from Tevin Thompson, one of the teens in the SUV with Davis.
"Somebody's been shot," Thompson told a dispatcher. "The Gate gas station on Baymeadows Road and Southside (boulevard)."
"Who shot them?" the dispatcher asked.
"We have no idea. Please, can you bring help? Please, now," Thompson said.
Those are just some of the emergency calls made that November night that are now evidence in the state attorney's case against Dunn, whom police arrested a day later at his home in Brevard County.
Crime scene photos show the red SUV Davis was in riddled with bullets. In one photo, nine bullet holes can be counted. Orange sticks in the photos show trajectory and where several bullets entered the back seat.
An autopsy report is also part of the evidence released Monday. Doctors say Davis was shot three times -- once in the abdomen and chest, and in both his right and left thigh. The bullet in his torso went to his heart and major arteries, according to the report.
No one else in the vehicle was hit.
Attorney John Phillips, who's representing Davis' family in a civil suit against Dunn, said while Dunn may claim self-defense and look for immunity under Florida's "stand your ground" law, he believes the evidence will bring a first-degree murder conviction.
"As the boys are literally fleeing for their lives, he's still shooting," Phillips said.
