In his first media interview after being arrested in February, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity he was sorry to the teen’s parents that they had to bury their child.
“I can’t imagine what it feels likes,” Martin said. “And I pray for them daily.”
Zimmerman remains out on bond in the highly publicized case that drew outrage during the first half of 2012.
During the interview Zimmerman gave his version of events, saying he got out of his car while on a neighborhood watch in his Sanford, Fla., gated community and followed Martin as he walked home from a convenience store. Zimmerman claims he lost track of Martin and that the teen later approached him and began fighting him, at which point he drew his gun and fired.
“I feel it was all God’s plan,” Zimmerman said, after Hannity asked him if he had any regrets.
Martin’s parents went on Fox news the night after to say they didn’t feel Zimmerman’s apology was sincere.
“I think he’s just saying whatever he wants to,” said Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton.
“He’s just trying to save face,” said Tracey Martin, Trayvon’s father.
