Trayvon Martin's parents have expressed their support for the parents of a 17-year-old fatally shot after an argument over loud music.
In a statement Saturday, Martin's parents said that no matter the verdict, Jordan Davis' parents won't ever see him again. Martin's parents said Davis' killing is "yet another reminder that in Florida, racial profiling and stereotypes" may serve as the basis for illegitimate fear "and the shooting and killing of young teenagers."
Michael Dunn is charged with first-degree murder for fatally shooting Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. Dunn claims he shot Davis in self-defense.
The trial is the latest Florida case to raise questions about self-defense and race and comes six months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime for fatally shooting 17-year-old Martin.
