NEW YORK (CNN) - The parents of Jordan Davis say they plan to fight Florida's "stand your ground" self-defense law.

A mistrial was declared over the weekend on the first-degree murder charge against Michael Dunn in the shooting death of Jordan Davis, 17.

Dunn said he shot Jordan Davis in self-defense.

The case has renewed the debate over race and Florida's "stand your ground" law.

Jordan Davis' parents told CNN they plan to ask state legislators to change the law.

"The world needs to know that Jordan Davis did nothing wrong. This man is guilty of killing our son, of murdering our son. And the law, the way it is now, creates hung juries and that's what we have here," said Ron Davis, Jordan Davis' father. "So what we want to do is go to Tallahassee. We're going to go to Tallahassee to the state capitol and try to get the stand your ground law rewritten."

Dunn was found guilty of three counts of attempted second-degree murder for shooting into an SUV carrying four teens after an argument over loud music.

He faces 60 years or more in prison when he's sentenced next month.
