Two squad cars blocked access to the intake building parking lot where Zimmerman was being released. Two public information officers checked the credentials of the waiting photographers.

Zimmerman rode in the car of the man who accompanied him. Authorities aren’t talking about his whereabouts. His destination is being kept secret for his safety.

Zimmerman says he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defense. The case sparked national outrage and led to many demonstrations.
