Must-See Video: George Zimmerman Reenacts Night of Trayvon Martin Shooting in Never-Before-Seen Footage
New evidence just released in the Trayvon Martin shooting case shows a side of the investigation as of yet unseen and highly anticipated. In video made public this morning by shooter George Zimmerman's attorney, the self-appointed neighborhood watchman can be seen the day after the February 26 shooting recounting the prior night's events to police, who accompanied him at the scene.
In the video, Zimmerman tells cops he was ambushed by Trayvon, punched, knocked to the ground, his head slamming the pavement. That's when he says the 17-year-old saw Zimmerman's pistol, and he felt it was life or death.

"The [dispatcher] said, 'Are you
following him?' And I said, 'Yes, because I was in the area,' and they said, 'We don't need you to do that.' That's when I went straight through here so I could get the address so I could meet the police officer," Zimmerman tells officers in the reenactment video.
