(Extra) — “Extra’s” AJ Calloway sat down exclusively with Oprah Winfrey in St. Louis, where she spoke for the first time about the tragic death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Winfrey said to Calloway about the Martin shooting, “It is a tragedy and it is a shame that we’re sitting here 33 days later and there hasn’t been an arrest, or questioning of what actually happened. It’s a tragedy and it is a shame and we all know it.”

The suspect, George Zimmerman, shot the teenager last month while conducting a routine neighborhood watch patrol in Florida. Zimmerman, who has not been arrested, claims he killed the youth in self-defense.

Oprah told Calloway that Zimmerman is on the top of her interview list. “Mr. Zimmerman. . . I would love to talk to him.”

Winfrey also commented on the nationwide outcry over the shooting. “I saw some people on Twitter saying nothing has changed, the same thing’s going on. Lots has changed and you know why? Because black people, white people, brown people, yellow people all over this country and all over the world are saying the same thing. . . it’s a tragedy and it’s a shame and justice needs to be served.”
