TALAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – The Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus is hosting an advance screening of a documentary about the case of a Jacksonville teenager fatally shot by a white man after an argument over loud music.

The film “3 1/2 minutes” will be shown Sunday at the Florida State University Student Life Cinema.

Michael Dunn, 48, was convicted of first-degree murder for the November 2012 slaying of Jordan Davis. Authorities say Dunn fired 10 times at the SUV Davis was riding in after the two argued over the loud rap music coming from the 17-year-old’s vehicle. He was sentenced to life in prison.

The documentary, which was also shown at the Sundance Film Festival, will be followed by a panel including Rep. Alan Williams and Jordan Greer of the FSU NAACP, and will address how pending campus gun carrying legislation would affect safety.
