[photogallerylink id=113314 align=left]Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton told the TODAY show this morning that she believes her son’s fatal shooting by George Zimmerman was an accident.

“I believe it was an accident, I believe that it just got out of control and he couldn’t turn the clock back,” she said. “I would ask him, ‘Did he know that that was a minor, that that was a teenager and that he did not have a weapon?’

Martin’s mom suggested that Zimmerman, who claims he killed Martin in self-defense, should apologize if he is remorseful…

One of the things that I still believe in: A person should apologize when they really — when they are actually remorseful for what they’ve done. I understand his family is hurting, but think about our family that lost our teenage son. I mean, it’s just very difficult to live with day in and day out. I’m sure his parents can pick up the phone and call him, but we can’t pick up the phone and call Trayvon anymore.
