Thursday afternoon at a press conference, "the New Black Panther Party for
Self-Defense" circulated a “wanted dead or alive” poster for George
Zimmerman for shooting to death a Florida teenager four weeks ago.
Witness: Martin attacked Zimmerman
ORLANDO - A witness we haven't heard from before paints a much
different picture than we've seen so far of what happened the night
17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed. The night of that shooting, police say there was a witness who saw it all.
Our sister station, FOX 35 in Orlando, has spoken to that witness.
What Sanford Police investigators have in the folder, they put together on the killing of Trayvon Martin few know about.
The file now sits in the hands of the state attorney. Now that file is just weeks away from being opened to a grand jury.
It shows more now about why police believed that night that George Zimmerman shouldn't have gone to jail.
Zimmerman called 911 and told dispatchers he was following a teen. The dispatcher told Zimmerman not to.
And from that moment to the shooting, details are few.
But one man's testimony could be key for the police.
"The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: 'help,
help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911," he said. Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.
The witness only wanted to be identified as "John," and didn't not want to be shown on camera.
His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up
Zimmerman's claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of
Zimmerman. "When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was
on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I
believe he was dead at that point," John said. Zimmerman says the
shooting was self defense. According to information released on the
Sanford city website, Zimmerman said he was going back to his SUV when
he was attacked by the teen. Sanford police say Zimmerman was
bloody in his face and head, and the back of his shirt was wet and had
grass stains, indicating a struggle took place before the shooting.
Barack Obama weighed into the controversial killing of a black teenager in
Florida in very personal terms on Friday, comparing the boy to a son he doesn't
have and calling for American "soul searching" over how the incident occurred.
"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," Obama said in his first comments about the
shooting, inserting a racial element in the case.
