Online Auction Halted For Gun Used To Kill Trayvon Martin

The pistol that former Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin was removed from the GunBroker.com website Thursday, minutes after the auction was to begin. Zimmerman had told an Orlando TV station that the 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol was returned to him by the U.S. Justice Department, which took it after he was acquitted in Martin's 2012 shooting death. It was not immediately clear why the website took down the listing.
