Trayvon Martin was killed in a Fla. Community in February
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- Alexandria Mayor Bill Eullie led a group of demonstrators Sunday night in Old Town's Market Square. The group of about 100 people gathered to protest the controversy surrounding the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
The two demands made were that Martin's shooter George Zimmerman be arrested, and that the so called " Stand Your Ground Law" be reviewed. Zimmerman has not been arrested because legislation in Florida allows for a person to shoot and kill if they feel their life is in danger without any obligation to retreat. So far that has been Zimmerman's claim for shooting Martin, although the details of the shooting are still being investigated.
Bill Eullie said Virginia does not have such legislation and he vowed to fight to make sure the commonwealth does not adopt a similar law.
