Authorities say gunfire knocked out a window on a police cruiser parked near the town home community where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. This comes a day after special prosecutor to the case, Angela Corey, decided that she will be the one to determine the fate of charging Zimmerman with the shooting – and not a Grand Jury.
