JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Word about the shooting of a 17-year old Jacksonville boy is spreading across the nation.

Hip-Hop and business mogul, Russell Simmons, sent out a tweet about Jordan Davis.

He's the teen who Jacksonville police say was gunned down by another driver because of the loud music coming from the SUV he was riding in. Davis was shot and killed in front of his friends at a gas station on the Southside.

Simmons tweeted:

        "RIP Jordan Davis: 17yr old yng black man shot and killed for playing music too loud...http://bit.ly/11dzOky PLEASE RETWEET."

Michael Dunn, 45, was moved Tuesday from the Brevard County Jail back to Jacksonville where he faces charges of murder and attempted murder in the shooting.

The two came face to face Friday night at the Gate Station on Southside Boulevard and Baymeadows Road.

Police say an argument over loud music ended with Dunn firing several shots into an SUV carrying Davis and three of his friends. Dunn told police he felt threatened, and claimed the teens flashed a shotgun.

Jordan will be buried this weekend in Georgia.
