Oprah Winfrey weighed in on the death of teenager Trayvon Martin for the first time on Wednesday, expressing her dismay at his killing and the handling of the case.

Martin was shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer named George Zimmerman in late February. His death, and the local police department’s failure to arrest the shooter, have sparked outrage across the country.

In an interview with Extra, Winfrey said, “It is a tragedy and it is a shame that we’re sitting here 33 days later and there hasn’t been an arrest, or questioning of what actually happened. It’s a tragedy and it is a shame and we all know it.”

She identified Zimmerman as the person she would most like to interview. She also commented on the reaction to Martin’s death.
