Video tribute filmed in Brooklyn for slain Fla. teen
A special video tribute was filmed in Brooklyn this weekend for slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
Hip-hop artist Jasiri X made a trip to the House of the Lord Church in Boerum Hill for the video shoot. The 17-year-old was gunned down by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, who claimed self-defense and was not arrested.
Those who attended the filming donned hoodies in solidarity with Martin, who police say was wearing a hoodie when Zimmerman called 911 and reported a suspicious person.
Martin's death has sparked national outrage over racial profiling.
