Police car shot at near site where Florida teen was killed

— Authorities say gunfire knocked out a window on a police cruiser parked near the townhome community where a black Florida teen was shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Sanford police told Orlando television station WKMG that the cruiser was found with at least two bullet holes Tuesday morning after witnesses reported hearing at least six gunshots. The car had been parked outside Bentley Elementary School for several weeks at the request of school officials.

The school is across the street from the Retreat at Twin Lakes, where 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in February. Zimmerman has claimed he shot the teen in self-defense, citing Florida’s so-called stand your ground law.

Police did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
