BARTOW, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge has set bail at $150,000 for a former city commissioner accused of fatally shooting a shoplifter at his store.
News outlets report the judge on Thursday also ordered Michael Dunn to remain under house arrest after he leaves jail. The judge said Dunn isn’t allowed to work in the Army/Navy surplus store he co-owns in Lakeland because it sells firearms. He was also ordered to surrender any weapons he owns.
Dunn resigned as a Lakeland Commissioner following the Oct. 3 shooting of 50-year-old Cristobal Lopez.
Several witnesses testified during the hearing, including Dunn’s wife and an employee who was working at the store when the shooting occurred.
