Shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday night, after two days of deliberating, the six-woman jury found defendant George Zimmerman not guilty in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The case that polarized the nation — some race, some political — ended late on Saturday night in the Florida courtroom, Zimmerman cracked a sigh and a smile and cameras didn’t show the Trayvon Martin camp.

Protesters were out all day long in front of the courtroom — many of them Trayvon Martin supporters — were chanting “no justice, no peace,” while crying and very emotional. HLN reporters said that Trayvon Martin’s attorneys rushed out of the courtroom shortly after the verdict was read.

We’ll update our story as more information comes in.
