Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," Scott said he was not sure if charges will be brought against the admitted shooter, George Zimmerman, but he promised a thorough investigation of the incident.

"Your heart goes out to them because no family ever imagines this could happen to their child," Scott said about Martin's family. "We've got to find out exactly what's going to happen…and make sure justice prevails."
