A Florida jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
The neighborhood watch volunteer pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. He claims he shot the unarmed 17-year-old in self-defense.
Jurors were also given the option of considering the lesser charge of manslaughter, but in the end they agreed with Zimmerman.
The six female jurors began deliberating yesterday afternoon.
