ATLANTA -- The fatal shooting of a Florida teenager who was listening to loud music in a car is drawing comparisons to the Trayvon Martin case, but there are some stark differences.

There are several witnesses to this shooting, and the man accused of killing Jordan Davis at a Jacksonville, Fla., gas station was arrested almost immediately.

In the Martin case, neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman wasn't arrested until more than a month after the shooting.

Michael David Dunn faces a murder charge. Police say Dunn opened fire after telling Davis and his friends to turn down their music. Dunn's attorney says he shot in self-defense.

Davis' funeral will be held in Powder Springs on Saturday.
