The Florida neighborhood where Trayvon Martin was killed resounded again with gunshots early Tuesday as someone pumped six rounds into an unoccupied police car. The town, Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett warned, has become “a kindling box,” but authorities want to maintain calm and “so far it’s been absolutely peaceful.” ABC News reported that emergency operations centers in three surrounding counties have been placed on the same level of preparedness as for a hurricane. “You plan for the worst and hope for the best,” Triplett told reporters. According to the Associated Press, the cruiser had been parked outside of a Sanford elementary school at the school’s request.
