Sergeant Ron King bought the targets online and then took them to a target practice session.
Once there it's claimed he offered them to several other officers but none accepted.
The targets show a hooded figure with no face holding a bag of skittles and a can of some sort of drink. The night Martin was shot and killed he had Skittles and a can of tea with him.
In a recent video (below) King denies the charges. He says the targets were for training aids only and were not to be shot at. King also says he has signed documents from witnesses saying he didn't offer the targets to anyone.
Still, King was fired this week after an internal investigation of the incident.
The Canaveral Port Authority spokesman called King's action "unacceptable" and told WFTV “whether his act was hatred or stupidity, none is tolerable”
Martin’s family issued a statement through their lawyer "it is absolutely reprehensible that a high-ranking member of the Port Canaveral Police, sworn to protect and serve Floridians, would use the image of a dead child as target practice. Such a deliberate and depraved indifference to this grieving family is unacceptable."
King, who had only been a member of the force a little over two years has one week to appeal the decision.
Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February of 2012 in Sanford, Florida.
Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch captain and is awaiting trial on a second-degree murder charge in the death.
