SANFORD, Fla. – Thousands of Sanford residents and protesters from around the country attended a rally for a black teen fatally shot by a neighborhood watch captain in Florida.

The rally was initially planned for a 400-seat church. But Thursday evening’s two-hour rally for 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was moved to Fort Mellon Park in downtown Sanford to make room for all the people expected to attend.

Zimmerman has claimed self-defense and has not been arrested. The case is being reviewed by the State Attorney’s Office.
