JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man accused of shooting a local teenager at a gas station is facing new charges.

A grand jury indicted Michael Dunn for first-degree murder.

Also added, three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of shooting or throwing a deadly missile.

"We are glad to see the Grand Jury and State Attorneys' office have viewed this case as seriously harmful and reprehensible to society as a whole," said John Phillips, the attorney for the family of Jordan Davis. "We hope justice for Jordan is swift."

Dunn is accused of killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis in a confrontation over loud music last month.

The man from Brevard County told police the teens flashed a shotgun out the car window after he told them to turn down their music at the Gate gas station at the corner of Baymeadows and Southside Boulevards. He says he felt threatened and fired.

Since the shooting, the family of Jordan Davis has been on a crusade to get rid of the Stand Your Ground law in Florida.

Dunn will make a first appearance at 9 a.m. Friday.
