Sanford, Florida – Protesters upset about the shooting death of an unarmed Florida teen rallied outside a local courthouse Monday, demanding the arrest of a neighborhood watch captain who told police he shot the teen in self-defense.

Many carried signs in remembrance of Trayvon Martin, 17, who was shot on his way from the store to the Sanford home of his father’s fiancee last month.

Assistant State Attorney Pat Whitaker told the group it would take several weeks to look at the case, but that the “investigation of the Sanford police needs to be greatly supplemented,” Jasmine Rand, the FAMU professor, said after the meeting.

The state attorney’s office also said a voice analysis would be conducted on 911 calls from the night of the shooting to determine who was yelling for help, students said.
