Trayvon Martin's parents express support for parents of teenage victim in loud-music killing

Trayvon Martin's parents have expressed their support for the parents of a 17-year-old fatally shot in Florida after an argument over loud music.

In a statement Saturday, Martin's parents said that no matter the verdict, Jordan Davis' parents won't ever see him again. Martin's parents said Davis' killing is "yet another reminder that in Florida, racial profiling and stereotypes" may serve as the basis for illegitimate fear "and the shooting and killing of young teenagers."

Michael Dunn, who is white, is charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. Dunn claims he shot Davis, who was black, in self-defense.

Saturday was the fourth day of jury deliberations in the case.
