Graffiti at arson scene referenced Zimmerman

DOWNINGTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Investigators in suburban Philadelphia say the words “Kill Zimmerman” were found spray-painted on the side of a building set on fire a day after the verdict was announced in the Trayvon Martin trial in Florida.

Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman was acquitted Saturday in the 2012 fatal shooting of Martin, who was unarmed. The verdict has sparked protests, vigils and arrests across the country.

The Daily Local News reports investigators in East Caln Township say the fire was set at a sign store Sunday night and has been ruled arson. Prosecutors say the words “Kill Zimmerman” were written in red spray-paint on the building. No arrests have been announced.

The investigation is ongoing and it wasn’t immediately clear if the business was targeted. Damage is estimated at $500,000.
