Trayvon Martin shooter apologizes; bail set at $150k
Lawyer for parents of Trayvon Martin spurns his remark
A routine bail hearing for George Zimmerman took a surprising turn into remorse and explanation Friday when the neighborhood watch volunteer got on the witness stand and told Trayvon Martin’s parents: “I am sorry for the loss of your son.’’ “I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know if he was armed or not,’’ Zimmerman said, marking the first time he has spoken publicly about the Feb. 26 shooting of the unarmed black 17-year-old.
