Sanford Police Discover Teen Shot In Road

SANFORD, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) — A teen was reportedly injured by gunfire in Sanford early Monday.

According to Bay News 9, officers heard shots fired around 2:10 a.m. Upon investigating the gunshots, they found a male victim suspected to be in his teens.

The unidentified teen was reportedly taken to the Orlando Regional Medical Center to be treated for what were called “serious injuries.”

Another vehicle nearby was struck by bullets, but no other injuries were reported.

A white or silver vehicle was allegedly seen leaving the area during the shooting.

Sanford is the same town where Trayvon Martin was killed by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman on Feb. 26.

Zimmerman has told police he shot the 17-year-old on Feb. 26 in self-defense. Martin’s family claims racial profiling was behind the killing, which has become a national flashpoint. Martin was black. Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is Hispanic.

Zimmerman has not been arrested, despite demands from black leaders and others that he be charged with murder or manslaughter. But a special prosecutor appointed by the governor is investigating, along with state and federal authorities.
