SANFORD, Fla. -
A group of students protesting the Trayvon Martin shooting on Monday blocked the entrance to the Sanford Police Department by kneeling in front of the
doors, forcing the department to close.
No arrests have been made in the protest, which comes a day after the students, who call themselves the Dream Defenders, completed a 40-mile,
three-day march from Daytona Beach to Sanford, where Martin, 17, was shot and killed by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in late February.
