Council Member Melvin Carter introducing Trayvon Martin resolution

The move is meant to support those seeking justice for the 17-year-old teen who was shot and killed in Sanford, Fla.

St. Paul City Council Member Melvin Carter III says he’ll introduce a Trayvon Martin resolution at today’s meeting, to support those seeking justice for the 17-year-old teen who was shot and killed Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla.

Carter’s resolution will call for support of Thursday’s “One Million Hoodie March for Trayvon Martin,” which will be at 6 p.m. on the University of Minnesota’s Northrop Plaza.

Carter’s resolution also would designate Thursday as “Trayvon Martin Day” in St. Paul.

CBS News says that the investigation into the shooting is essentially starting over, with “the new special prosecutor and a team of investigators quietly re-interviewing witnesses and examining evidence related to the unarmed teen’s shooting death.”
