JACKSONVILLE, Florida  — Nine bullet holes were found in an SUV in which a teen was killed after an argument with a man on trial for murderover loud music outside a Florida convenience store, a veteran crime scene investigator testified Saturday.

One of the bullets fired into the rear door killed Jordan Davis, 17, in November 2012. Michael Dunn, 47, is on trial in Jacksonville, charged with first-degree murder, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count shooting or throwing a deadly missile.

The case echoes a trial that received wide attention over another notorious shooting around the same time in Florida. George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen, in Sanford in 2012. Zimmerman, a Hispanic, was acquitted of second-degree murder in July 2013.

On Saturday, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Detective Andrew Kipple’s testimony about the location of the bullet holes also showed that the SUV’s driver and his front-seat passenger barely escaped being shot.
