Neighbor: Zimmerman Said, ‘Just Tell Her I Shot Someone’

Two former neighbors of George Zimmerman have been describing what they saw and heard during and after Zimmerman’s fatal encounter with Trayvon Martin last year.

A man who went outside after hearing a gunshot says Zimmerman asked him to call his wife and tell her that he shot someone. Jonathan Manlo took cellphone photos of a bloodied Zimmerman and of Martin’s body, and those photos were shown to jurors today.

He said Zimmerman didn’t appear shocked, and that he acted calmly. It was after police arrived and handcuffed Zimmerman that Zimmerman asked him to call his wife.

Earlier, another neighbor who saw a struggle between Zimmerman and Martin said it appeared that the teen was straddling Zimmerman as they scuffled on the ground. Zimmerman has claimed that he shot Martin in self-defense as the teen was banging Zimmerman’s head on the ground. But Jonathan Good says he didn’t see anyone being attacked that way.
