BREAKING FROM FOX NEWS: ZIMMERMAN WILL BE CHARGED!

Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey will announce that she is charging George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, The Washington Post reported Wednesday, citing a law enforcement official close to the investigation.

It is unclear what charges he will face.

The unarmed Martin, an African-American, was shot and killed in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., by neighborhood watchman Zimmerman, who claims he was acting in self-defense.

Zimmerman’s lack of arrest in the case has sparked nationwide protests by civil rights activists who claim race has been a factor in the investigation.

Zimmerman has been in hiding for weeks and is not believed to be in the state of Florida, his former lawyers said Tuesday.

    I’m glad and I’m sad about the arrest of G. Zimmerman. Glad because the charge means Trevon Martin’s life is being valued as a citizen of this country and not just another nameless black face on a news report. I’m sad because charging and convicting his murderer won’t give him his life back. But perhaps it will set a precedent and other similarly minded people like George Zimmerman will think twice before they shoot.
