SANFORD, FLA. -- The neighborhood watch volunteer accused of fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin has been released from jail.
George Zimmerman was released from the Seminole County Jail shortly after midnight Monday, after posting $150,000 bond.
Zimmerman is facing charges of second degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Martin inside a Sanford condominium complex.
On Friday, a judge granted Zimmerman bond. Zimmerman also took the stand during Friday's proceedings and apologized to the teen's family.
Zimmerman claimed the shooting was in self defense. According to police, he said that Martin attacked him and slammed his head against the sidewalk before he shot and killed the teen.
Before Friday morning's hearing, ABC News released a photo allegedly taken just moments after the shooting. In the photo, Zimmerman appears to have a bleeding laceration on the back of his head.
The photo could corroborate Zimmerman's claim of self defense.
Since the shooting, many in the African American community have characterized the incident as a racially charged murder. Many groups are also calling for a repeal of Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law.
Gov. Rick Scott has also appointed a 17-member panel to re-examine the law.
