There is a trending NOT TRUE story stating that "George Zimmerman Paid $2 Million For Weapon Used In Shooting Death Of Trayvon Martin." The story comes from reknowned satire/hoax website Empire Herald, which states in their Terms of Service page this little nugget that is buried at the very bottom of the page:
A little excerpt from the NOT TRUE story:
Zimmerman, now 32 years old, has now become a multi-millionaire after selling the Kel-Tec PF-9mm handgun he used to shoot and kill Trayvon Martin. The handgun was originally listed on GunBroker.com, on Thursday with an auction start time of 11 a.m. however the listing was removed within seconds. The weapon was posted for sale with a starting bid set at $5,000 with an undisclosed "reserve price" for the winner bidder to meet. Despite his listing being removed, a private gun collector from Georgia decided to contact Zimmerman personally to purchase the gun. Zimmerman was paid $2 Million for the handgun via a private broker in Miami.
