(ORLANDO SENTINEL) — A Seminole County grand jury, as well as the U.S. Department of Justice, will investigate the Trayvon Martin case, the racially-charged fatal shooting of an unarmed black 17-year-old in Sanford.

State Attorney Norm Wolfinger this morning released a prepared statement, saying he would have a county grand jury hear evidence April 10.

His office, with the help of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, is reviewing and collecting evidence in the case, his statement said.

“I respectfully request that the public remain patient as this process moves forward,” said his statement.
