JACKSONVILLE, Florida (WTLV/AP) -- A Florida man is facing murder and attempted murder charges for allegedly shooting a 17-year-old student at a Jacksonville gas station because the teen's music was too loud.

Michael Dunn told police he felt threatened during an argument last week with Jordan Davis after he complained the music the teen was playing in his car was too loud.

Jacksonville homicide Lt. Rob Schoonover said Dunn pulled out a weapon and started firing into the vehicle. Davis was shot a few times. Eight or nine bullet holes were also found in the car.

Dunn has pleaded not guilty.

Our news partners at WTLV First Coast News have put together a timeline of events:

Friday, November 23rd: Police were called to a shooting at the Gate gas station located at Baymeadows Road and Southside Boulevard.

Several teenagers were in a red SUV when a gas station customer, reported to be Michael Dunn, complained about their loud music. That led to a verbal confrontation and ended with the suspect, Dunn, firing several rounds into the SUV, killing one of the passengers, later identified as 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

First Coast News staffers said it was obvious by the crime scene that the circumstances were unique.

Saturday, November 24th: 45-year-old Michael Dunn is arrested at his Brevard County condominium on a warrant from Duval County. He is charged with the death of Davis, who was revealed to be a student at Wolfson High School.

Sunday, November 25th: FCN reporter Michelle Quesada was the only journalist in Satellite Beach as the Dunn family gathered to pray in the backyard of their home.

Monday, November 26th: FCN cameras were there as Dunn made a court appearance in Brevard County. His attorney declared that Dunn fired shots into the vehicle because he felt threatened.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said the teenager was not armed. Police also said that Dunn was in Jacksonville after attending his son's wedding in Clay County. He fled the scene after the shooting, not knowing someone had been killed, according to his attorney.

Tuesday, November 27th: Dunn is extradited from Brevard County to the Duval County Jail on charges of murder and attempted murder. For the first time, Dunn's attorney contradicts JSO and claims the teens were armed with a shotgun.

Wednesday, November 28th: Dunn waives his first court appearance and is being kept in the Duval County pretrial detention facility without bond.
