We followed the trial, where you can also read the background of the case at this link. Wayne Isaacs was not on duty when he shot and killed Delrawn Small. However, his defense during trial was that he acted according to his training and killed Delrawn in self-defense. Within seconds of Delrawn approaching the driver’s side window of Isaacs car, Isaacs shot him three times.
Isaacs was charged with murder and the alternative charge of manslaughter.

Thanks so much for the update and links to newly filed pleadings.
In February, a Florida jury found Michael Dunn guilty on four of five charges in a case in which Dunn shot ten times at a car full of teenagers over a dispute that started about loud music. However, the 12 person jury could not come to a unanimous decision on the charge of the murder of Jordan Davis and a mistrial was declared on that count alone. A retrial of that count is scheduled for September 22. Dunn faces a minimum of 60 years for the other convictions. Sentencing has been delayed until after trial has concluded.
