Zimmerman Defies Police

Zimmerman, 28, ignored the police’s order not to follow Martin and confronted him. By the end of the encounter, Zimmerman had fired his 9 mm handgun, killing the teen who was carrying only an iced tea and a bag of Skittles.  Police have made public 911 recordings between their officials and Zimmerman as well as other callers. In one call from a neighbor, there is the sound of Martin crying for help followed by the sound of a gunshot.
