Six shots were fired into an empty police cruiser early today at the Retreat at Twin Lakes in Sanford, Florida, where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed.

No one was injured in the 4:30 a.m. shooting. Police removed the vehicle and began an investigation.

Sanford, Florida, Mayor Jeff Triplett said: "Are we a kindling box? Sure. But we're working down a path and so far it's been absolutely peaceful. You plan for the worst and hope for the best."
