Anniversary of Trayvon Martin shooting

Tuesday marks the one year anniversary of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

A memorial of stuffed animals and crosses has been created to remember the teenager from Sanford, Florida.

His parents will attend a candlelight vigil tonight in New York city.

Martin’s death has become a racial issue and opened a debate about Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.

Community watch volunteer George Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense.

Zimmerman’s trial is scheduled to begin in June.
