(Newser) – Only George Zimmerman's DNA was found on the gun used to kill Trayvon Martin, according to test results revealed today. The findings could undermine George Zimmerman's self defense claims, the LA Times reports. Zimmerman reportedly originally told police that Martin went for the gun. The tests prove that Martin's DNA never touched the gun's grip, but were inconclusive as to whether it may have touched the holster, according to the AP.
