Police investigate after Trayvon Martin mural defaced in NJ
NBC NEW YORK – Police in New Jersey are investigating after a mural of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin was defaced with paint.
The mural was created several weeks ago on the side of Messina Deli in Elmwood, with the words “Trayvon, we got you,” over a man in a hoodie, a symbol that became part of Martin’s story, which captured attention nationwide.

Martin, 17, was wearing a hoodie when he was gunned down by a neighborhood watch volunteer who called 911 and reported him as being “suspicious” as he walked through a gated community on his way home from getting a snack.
On the mural, off-white paint now covers the man in the hoodie.
