The gun used to kill Trayvon Martin, a young black teenager who was shot in Florida, which was set to be auctioned at a starting bid of $5,000, is no longer available for purchase, according to several media reports.
George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing Martin in 2012, had listed the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm on a gun broker website.
"The firearm for sale is the firearm that was used to defend my life and end the brutal attack from Trayvon Martin on 2/26/2012," Zimmerman said in the now deleted description.
Gunbroker.com, the website on which the gun was posted, has yet to confirm to CNBC if the gun is no longer up for auction, but the former link to the item now returns an error message.
The Trayvon Martin case sparked outrage nationwide when Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, shot and killed 17-year-old Martin in Sanford, FL.
Zimmerman alleged that Martin was acting suspiciously and wearing a 'hoodie,' a hooded sweatshirt, that he refused to remove. Zimmerman called the police from his car but before they arrived, Martin was shot and killed. Zimmerman claimed he was acting in self-defense after Martin attacked him, an allegation that was never confirmed.
