State, Federal Agencies to Investigate Killing of Trayvon Martin
Twenty-two days after 17-year-old Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in Sanford, the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice announced late Monday night that they will be investigating his death at the hands of 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, according to the Miami Herald. The announcement was not on the Department of Justice website at the time of this posting.
Zimmerman went door-to-door asking residents to be on the lookout, specifically referring to young black men who appeared to be outsiders, and warned that some were caught lurking, neighbors said...
Zimmerman called police 46 times since Jan. 1, 2011 to report disturbances, break-ins, windows left open and other incidents. Nine of those times, he saw someone or something suspicious.
