(Fox News) George Zimmerman, the man who was acquitted of murder charges in 2013 in the high-profile death Trayvon Martin, said Wednesday he's auctioning off the gun that he said was used to shoot and kill Martin.
"I recently received it back from the Department of Justice. They took it after my trial, after I was exonerated," Zimmerman told Fox 35 Orlando.
He told the station the he's received plenty of death threats while he's been in hiding and has received much more after putting the 9mm pistol that was used to kill Marin on Feb. 26, 2012 up for auction.
