San Diegans To Remember Trayvon Martin With Rally and March

A rally, march and candlelight vigil to honor a Florida boy shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer will be held in downtown San Diego today.

The Justice for Trayvon Martin Rally and March is set to begin at 5 p.m. in Balboa Park.

At 6 p.m., participants are expected to march to the federal building at 880 Front St., where the rally will resume and a candlelight vigil will be held at 7 p.m.

Martin, 17, was killed on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., by George Zimmerman, who admitted to the shooting but told police he fired in self-defense. Sanford police said physical evidence from the scene supported his claim, and he was not arrested.

However, both a Florida state task force and the U.S. Justice Department are now looking into the incident.
