George Zimmerman has been released from a Florida jail on $150,000 bond as he awaits trial for shooting Trayvon Martin.

The neighborhood watch volunteer left the Seminole County jail around midnight Sunday.

Zimmerman is awaiting trial on second-degree murder charges for the fatal Feb. 26 shooting of Martin in a gated community near Orlando. He says he shot the 17-year-old Martin in self-defense. Martin was visiting from Miami and was walking back to the home of his father's fiance after visiting a convenience store. He was unarmed.
