George Zimmerman says he's sold the gun used to kill Trayvon Martin for around $250,000.
Newsy's partners at KTNV say Zimmerman told them he'd received an even higher bid than he was anticipating. A bar owner in Florida said Zimmerman previously accepted his bid of $150,000, but the deal fell through at the last minute.
Other attempts to auction the gun online were plagued with difficulties — Zimmerman's auction was pulled from one site, and spam accounts drove the bidding at another listing up to $65 million.
