The Gun That Killed Trayvon Martin Finds a Buyer

George Zimmerman said Wednesday he has sold the handgun he used to kill Trayvon Martin in 2012. Though he did not specify how much the 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol sold for, bidding for the weapon started at $100,000 when Zimmerman placed the gun up for sale on the United Gun Group website last week. The last offer was made by someone using the name “John Smith,” who bid $138,900 one minute before the auction closed, reports The Orlando Sentinel. The gun had recently been returned to Zimmerman by the U.S. Department of Justice.
