A Florida police officer who brought images of Trayvon Martin to target practice has been fired, FOX News reports.
Sgt. Ron King of the Port Canaveral police dept. was participating in target practice with two other Port Canaveral police officers and a civilian port employee when he produced images resembling Trayvon Martin.
King asked the men if they wanted to use the images for target practice and they said no, Port Canaveral Interim Chief Executive Officer John Walsh told WFTV. Walsh said the men told King to put the images back into his patrol car.
Port Canaveral is about 50 miles southeast of Sanford, Florida, where unarmed 17-year-old Martin was shot and killed in 2012 by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense.
