A Florida jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin on Saturday.
Zimmerman, 29, plead not-guilty and said he was acting in self-defense when he shot the unarmed Martin, 17, in the chest during an altercation in a gated community of Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26. 2012.
The jurors could have also convicted Zimmerman with manslaughter.
Editor’s note: George Zimmerman has sued NBC Universal for defamation. The company strongly denies the allegation.
