Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Boston Police Commissioner William Evans today released the following statement regarding the auction of the gun that was used to kill Trayvon Martin:

"We are deeply troubled that someone would look to profit from a tragedy that caused so much pain and turmoil across our country. In Boston, our focus is taking guns off the streets and out of the wrong hands. We believe this gun should be destroyed, so no more lives can be lost."
