Wade Speaks Out on Shooting Death of Florida Teen
MIAMI (AP) -- Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat has posted a photo of himself wearing a hooded sweat shirt to his Twitter and Facebook pages, in response to the death of a black teenager shot by a neighborhood crime-watch volunteer.

Later Friday LeBron James also posted a photo on Twitter of Heat players in hoodies, all with heads bowed and their hands in the front pocket.

Wade says he posted his photo early Friday because ''as a father, this hits home.''

Trayvon Martin, unarmed and wearing a hooded sweat shirt, was shot and killed Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., by neighborhood crime-watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who says he acted in self-defense and has not been arrested.
