The complexity of the Trayvon Martin shooting continues. This time an empty Sanford Police car parked outside the apartment complex where Trayvon Martin was shot was found Tuesday morning riddled with bullets. According to local Police, no one was inside the vehicle at the time of the shooting, however, at least one window was shattered as a result. Witnesses testify they heard at least 6 shots fired. No arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing.
This case made National headlines after Zimmerman’s action came into question. He claims self-defense under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, but others are not so sure.
