SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff's deputies separated some supporters of George Zimmerman from advocates of Trayvon Martin outside the Seminole County Courthouse following a heated exchange.

No physical contact was made Saturday afternoon between the supporters as they waited for a verdict in George Zimmerman's trial for second-degree murder.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming he shot the 17-year-old Martin in self-defense.

About 100 supporters have gathered outside the courthouse as they await the jury of six women to reach a verdict.
