Local support for Trayvon Martin grows

Hello from the WSFA 12 Newsroom.
Demonstrators gathered at Alabama State University today in a show of support for the family of Florida shooting victim Trayvon Martin.  Students and others gathered outside the ASU Acadome to express their concerns about his death and the Sanford Police Department's refusal to arrest the man who admitted shooting the 17 year old.
 
Civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton spoke of the Trayvon Martin case during his eulogy for his late mother at her funeral in Newville, Alabama in Henry County north of Dothan.  Al Sharpton was born in Dothan where his family lived.  We'll have the full story on what was said starting with WSFA 12 News "First at Four."
 
And, we'll have the latest on attempts to get a handle on the finances of the state's Medicaid Commission in light of the resignation of its commissioner and revelations of an $81-million accounting error.  That mistake has lawmakers scratching their heads as to how to adequately fund the agency through the remainder of the fiscal year.
 
Plus Jeff Shearer reports on the Rays and the Biscuits from spring training in Florida.
 
See you on the set!
