TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- People all over the Big Bend and Florida are turned up their radio dials Friday evening in memory of a seventeen year old who was killed after an argument over loud music.

Police say 45-year-old Michael Dunn shot high school senior Jordan Davis at a gas station in Jacksonville on November 23rd.

They said he allegedly fired seven or eight shots into Davis' SUV.

Officers arrested Dunn the next day at his home in Satellite Beach.

He later told detectives he fired the gun because he felt threatened.

People are also taking to social media in this movement.

On Twitter people were sharing their thoughts using the hashtag - "turn up for Jordan".

Investigators are saying that this deadly shooting stemmed from an argument over loud music.

And that's led into this demonstration of having people turn up their radio, to show their support for Jordan’s family.

It's been gaining a lot of attention across the country including from nationally syndicated radio morning show host Steve Harvey.

“Those of us that have kids we know this could very easily be my son sitting in the car listening to loud music,” said Harvey.
