The former neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting a Florida teenager told a judge Tuesday that he agrees with his defense attorneys’ decision not to seek an immunity hearing under the state’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law.
Police say a teenager will not be charged in the death of a 57-year-old man whose body was found on a central Fla. roadway.

Authorities are investigating after they say a southwest Florida business owner fatally shot a suspect trying to rob his store.
