JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Witnesses have recounted how a Florida man fired at an SUV outside a Jacksonville convenience store, killing a teen, following an argument over loud music.

More witnesses and police officers will take the stand Friday in 47-year-old Michael Dunn's first-degree murder trial for fatally shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis in 2012.

An argument began after Dunn told the Marietta, Ga., teen and his friends to turn down the music coming from their SUV. One of Davis' friends lowered the volume, but Davis then told him to turn it back up.

Prosecutor John Guy told jurors during Thursday's opening statements that Davis posed no threat to Dunn and that there was no weapon in Davis' vehicle.

Defense attorney Cory Strolla says Davis threatened Dunn with a knife.
