Zimmerman told police that he shot the 17-year-old Martin on Feb. 26 after Martin attacked him. His attorney has said Zimmerman’s nose was broken in the fight and the back of his head was gashed.
A lawyer for Martin’s family says the video clearly shows that Zimmerman’s nose wasn’t broken and he had no noticeable blood on his head and face.
Police did not arrest Zimmerman, touching off widespread public outrage and protests across the country.
Fla shooter’s dad: Son was trying to protect self
The father of a neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager says despite dispatchers telling his son to stop following Trayvon Martin, he kept going so he could get an address for police to check.
Robert Zimmerman spoke to WOFL FOX 35 in Orlando in an interview that aired Wednesday night. He says his son was suspicious because of several break-ins and thought it was strange for someone to be walking between the town homes on a rainy night.
He reiterated what other George Zimmerman supporters have said. He says his son was walking back to his car and Martin confronted him.
He says Martin broke his son’s nose and knocked him to the concrete.
He says Martin continued the beating and his son “pulled his pistol and did what he did.”
