A senior law enforcement source says George Zimmerman will be charged with 2nd-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Police say the Neighborhood Watch volunteer shot and killed the 17-year-old Martin in Sanford, Florida back in February.

Zimmerman says he fired in self-defense because he was being attacked. As of now, it's unclear exactly what charges he'll be facing.

The special prosecutor assigned to the case has called for a news conference in Jacksonville, Florida at 6:00 p.m. tonight.
