The fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman took place on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, United States. Trayvon Martin was a 17-year-old African American male who was unarmed. George Zimmerman was a 28-year-old multi-racialHispanic American,[Note 1] who was the community watch coordinator for the gated community where he shot Martin to death.
While on a private errand, Zimmerman saw Martin walking inside the gated community where Martin and his father were visiting his father’s fiancée. Zimmerman called the Sanford Police Department to report Martin’s behavior as suspicious. Shortly afterwards, there was an altercation, which ended with Zimmerman fatally shooting Martin once in the chest at close range.
When police arrived on the scene Zimmerman told them that Martin had attacked him and that he had shot Martin in self-defense.Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and two vertical lacerations on the back of his head. EMTs treated Zimmerman at the scene, after which he was taken to the Sanford Police Department. Zimmerman was detained and questioned for approximately five hours. A statement was videotaped, and he was then released without being charged. Police said that they had not found evidence to contradict his assertion of self-defense.
The circumstances of Martin’s death, the initial decision not to charge Zimmerman, and questions about Florida’s Stand Your Groundlaw received national and international attention. Allegations of racist motivation for the shooting and police conduct contributed to public demands for Zimmerman’s arrest.A Special Prosecutor was appointed to take over the investigation and on April 11, 2012, she chose to file charges of murder in the second degree against Zimmerman.Zimmerman then turned himself in and was placed in custody. On April 20, the judge approved Zimmerman’s bail on a $150,000 bond. He was released from jail on April 23 and is required to wear an electronic monitoring device until trial. (Wikipedia)
