A newly posted photo reportedly taken the night of Trayvon Martin’s death appears to show the back of George Zimmerman’s head, bloody and wounded.
ABC News reported that the photo was taken just three minutes after Martin was shot and killed. The photographer who snapped the photo said Zimmerman asked him to call his wife. When the photographer asked what he should tell her, he said Zimmerman said, “Man, just tell her I shot someone.”
The photographer did not witness the scuffle, but said that he could hear it.
Zimmerman told police that he shot Martin in self-defense after the teen broke his nose and bashed his head against the ground. However, that claim was debated within the media after surveillance video was released that didn’t clearly show any injuries on Zimmerman the night of the shooting.
A police report did include an officer’s summary of the incident, including that he noticed Zimmerman’s head was wet and that he was bleeding.
Zimmerman, who was charged with second degree murder, is in court seeking bond today. On the stand, he addressed the Martin family, saying, “I am sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was.”
