DNA Results Show Trayvon Martin Did Not Touch Gun That Killed Him In Fight With Zimmerman

DNA Results Show Trayvon Martin Did Not Touch Gun That Killed Him In Fight With Zimmerman
World

A forensic report has revealed that the gun used to shoot and kill 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida this past February was not touched by the teenager.

Forensic analysis made public today by Florida police showed that the only DNA identified on the grip of the gun belongs to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed the teen.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to the second-degree murder charge in the highly publicized case which has brought widespread public outcry.

Zimmerman’s DNA was also found on the holster but according to the Florida police report, results were inconclusive as to whether Martin’s DNA were also on it.

Martin was unarmed and walking home from a store after purchasing an iced tea and a bag of Skittles when Zimmerman said he saw a suspicious African American male.

Zimmerman followed and confronted the teen, who was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

Zimmerman claims a struggle ensued, and that he only shot Martin after he had reached for Zimmerman’s gun, but this new evidence disproves his statement.
