Students protesting the Trayvon Martin outside the Sanford Police Department forced the closure of the building to the public Monday.

The protesters blocked the entrance Monday morning upon learning that a grand jury would not be convened, prompting the police headquarters to close to the public for the day.

Protesters only left the station after Florida State Attorney Angela Corey talked to them over the phone and gave her assurances that the investigation was continuing.

Florida Attorney General-Pam Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott replaced former lead prosecutor Norm Wolfinger with Corey on March 22, the same day Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee temporarily stepped down amid sharp criticism of his department's handling of the case.

Lawyers for Martin's family have accused Wolfinger of disregarding a police recommendation that Zimmerman be charged with manslaughter.

Wolfinger has denied the allegations.
