George Zimmerman was released early Monday morning from the Seminole County jail, the Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Zimmerman, the man who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February, posted $150,000 bail and left the Sanford jail fitted with an electronic monitoring device that the Sheriff's Office and Seminole County Probation officials will use to keep track of him.

The 28-year-old walked out of the jail wearing a brown Pittsburgh Steelers jacket and carrying a brown paper bag. He quickly got into the back seat of a white BMW and was driven away. He did not comment to reporters, who were kept at a distance.
