One of the jurors in the Michael Dunn trial -- who asked to be identified simply as "Valerie" -- told "Nightline" in an exclusive interview Tuesday night that three jurors determined Dunn was justified in shooting Davis. The deadlock prompted shouting matches, said Valerie, who wanted a murder conviction.

"A life was taken. There is no longer a Jordan Davis, and there is only one reason why that is. The boy was shot and killed for reasons that should not have happened," Valerie said.

Jordan's parents said they took Valerie's speaking out as reassurance that the jurors took the case seriously.

"I really think those comments were designed to let us know, 'we fought. We didn't take it lightly,'" McBath said.
