JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A shooting over loud music is what kept a father from seeing his son's 18th birthday.
"You want your child to get the first car, get that first job and do some of those wonderful things that 18-year-olds do," said Ron Davis.
But come Saturday, loud music will be played in downtown Jacksonville to honor Jordan Davis' life. "It's Jordan's birthday, and it will be a big day for Jacksonville," said Ron.
Ron Davis is teaming up with two local DJ's at the Jacksonville Landing for the "Turn Up the Music for Our Youth" day. "This is the proclamation proclaiming Jordan Russell Davis Day in the City of Jacksonville," said Ron.
Davis says the only thing louder than the music Saturday will be his message of non-violence. "We want to repeal, change, rewrite the stand your ground law," he said.
The man accused of killing the teen said he felt threatened and was standing his ground when he pulled the trigger. "It's to much gray area. And to many of our kids and to many of our adults are getting killed. We call it the shoot first, ask questions later law," said Davis.
Ron is now fighting the law while celebrating Jordan's life to keep other parents from missing out on this major milestone. "It will be bittersweet," said Ron.
Michael Dunn is charged in Davis' death. He is due in court February 19 . Festivities for Jordan Davis Day are Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Jacksonville Landing.
