Mom of dead Fla. teen clarifies 'accident' remark
Mom of dead Fla. teen clarifies that 'accident' was the meeting with shooter, not the killing
By The Associated Press

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) ' Trayvon Martin's mother says the encounter between her son and a neighborhood watch volunteer was an accident, not the shooting that left her 17-year-old son dead.

Sybrina Fulton clarified her remarks Thursday to The Associated Press after she referred to what happened to her son on NBC's "Today" show as an accident.

Some viewers interpreted her remark to mean she was referring to the shooting, but she says that isn't what she meant. She says the encounter between Martin and George Zimmerman was the accident.



Zimmerman was charged Wednesday with second-degree murder. He is awaiting a first appearance before a judge in a central Florida jail.

Martin's death, and the delay in Zimmerman's arrest, led to protests nationwide.

Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense during the Feb. 26 confrontation.
