Another killing raises questions about "Stand your ground"

Months after the killing of Trayvon Martin, another unarmed black teen is gunned down in Florida.  The killing of Jordan Davis has not received the same attention, but the parallels to the Trayvon Martin case are hard to miss. The trial of the man who admits killing Davis, Michael Dunn, is expected to begin in September, and he is also claiming self-defense.  Anderson spoke with Davis' parents, Lucia McBath and Jordan Davis.  They were joined by their lawyer John Phillips.

The Next Trayvon?

Jordan Davis and Trayvon Martin had plenty in common.  They were both 17, black, and unarmed when they were shot and killed.  The men charged with murder in each case say they did it in self-defense.  Michael Dunn who killed Davis claimed he saw a weapon, but none was found.  The killing of Jordan Davis is raising more questions about Florida's "Stand your ground" law.  Drew Griffin takes a closer look.

Tonight on AC360: The next Trayvon Martin case?

Jordan Davis was 17, the same age as Trayvon Martin, when he crossed paths with 45-year-old Michael Dunn in a Jacksonville, Florida parking lot.  Their deadly encounter happened about 100 miles north of Sanford, and just nine months after George Zimmerman killed Martin.  Dunn is claiming he shot and killed Davis in self-defense, telling police he belived Davis and his friends had weapons.  Though none were ever found.  It's another case linked to Florida's "Stand your ground" law.  Jordan's parents are talking to Anderson.
