Autopsy pending in shooting death

By

The man accused in a shooting death could be facing more charges. Patrick A. McCall is already in the Alachua County Jail, charged with shooting Robert Matthew Judah last month. Judah died yesterday during a follow up surgery relating to the injuries he sustained in the shooting, and Alachua County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Todd Kelly says that could mean more severe charges for McCall.

He says the State Attorney’s Office is also considering charges against McCall relating to other shots fired that day. Judah was shooting skeet outside the Forest Grove Baptist Church October 21. Law enforcement says McCall exited his home and randomly fired a handgun across the street in the direction of the church, hitting Judah. He is currently charged with Attempted Homicide.

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.
