New evidence in Florida teens death

ORLANDO, Fla.-- There are now reports that the Florida neighborhood watch man who killed a teen might be accused of a hate crime.

George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvone Martin last month.

The Sanford Police Department said that new evidence is stating that Zimmerman uttered a racial slur that the dispatcher heard.

Now, Civil Rights activists, community members, and Martin's father think it is a racially-charged crime.

Tracy Martin, the boy father said, "If he had been white he wouldn't have stopped him, he wouldn't have been approached at all."

Zimmerman has still not been arrested.
