JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The defense has rested in the trial of a Florida man charged with fatally shooting a 17-year-old boy after an argument over loud music.

Defendant Michael Dunn's lawyer rested Tuesday after calling him to the witness stand. Dunn says he feared for his life when he fired the bullets that killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga., outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. He is pleading not guilty to first-degree murder.

Dunn says he thought he saw a gun pointed at him from an SUV parked next to his car.

After the defense rested, prosecutors called Dunn's fiancee as a rebuttal witness.

Rhonda Rouer contradicted Dunn's assertion that he had told her he had seen a gun in the teen's SUV.
