A jury has found George Zimmerman not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin.

The panel of six women acquitted him of charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Martin, who was killed by a single gunshot.

The neighborhood watch volunteer called 911 when he saw Martin, then 17, walking in the rain in a Sanford, Florida, gated community in February 2012.

Zimmerman’s attorneys argued that it was Martin who attacked Zimmerman, who then fired his gun in self-defense.

The case attracted national attention and debate about race and guns when police did not initially charge Zimmerman, a Hispanic, in the killing of Martin, who was African-American.

Watch continuing live coverage on CNN TV and HLN for reaction and analysis to the verdict.
