Trayvon Martin's DNA Not Found on Gun

Tests on the gun used to kill Trayvon Martin show traces of George Zimmerman's DNA but none that matches the teen, according to evidence released today by Florida prosecutors handling the case.

The office of State Attorney Angela Corey released that report, along with previously reported witness statements, hundreds of photos of the gated community where the shooting occurred and a 911 call made by Trayvon's father the day after the teen's death. The items included an interview of the 7-Eleven clerk who saw Trayvon the moments before his death.

Authorities conducted DNA tests on the slide, trigger, grip and holster of the automatic pistol Zimmerman used to kill the 17-year-old unarmed teenager in February in Sanford, Fla.
