Trayvon Martin rally held in Downtown Fresno

Friday, April 06, 2012

A rally and candlelight vigil was held in Downtown Fresno tonight for a Florida teen who was shot to death.

The event was led by reverend Floyd D. Harris Junior. Some of the people who turned out wore hoodies in honor of Trayvon Martin.

Martin was shot and killed by Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman. Martin's family and supporters want Zimmerman arrested. But police say that a self-defense law referred to as Stand Your Ground is preventing them from doing that.
