FBI requests Florida police not return gun to Zimmerman

The FBI has asked authorities in Sanford, Fla. to not give George Zimmerman back his gun after he was cleared of all charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a Department of Justice official tells Fox News.

The report may serve as further confirmation the Justice Department is taking seriously its investigation into whether or not to pursue a federal civil rights case against Zimmerman, after Attorney General Eric Holder said in an address Tuesday to the NAACP that his department would “consider all available information” before deciding whether to move forward.

The Sanford Police Department told the Orlando Sentinel Thursday that evidence released earlier this week to the agency has been placed “in a hold status,” pending the Justice Department investigation.
