Lawyers Drop Trayvon Shooter

George Zimmerman, phone home. The attorneys for the 28-year-old Sanford, Fla., man who shot unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin in February have dropped their client, saying at a press conference Tuesday afternoon that they haven’t heard from Zimmerman since the weekend. They also said that Zimmerman had an off-the-record chat with Fox News host Sean Hannity on his own initiative. Zimmerman has still not been charged with any crime, but dropped out of sight after Martin’s death became a cause célèbre. He claims that the shooting was in self-defense, and this week set up a website through which supporters can donate money toward his living expenses and legal fees.
