Father Of Trayvon Martin Shooter Speaks

Father Of Trayvon Martin Shooter Speaks, George Zimmerman’s father told an Orlando television station that Trayvon Martin threatened to kill his son, then beat him before he shot and killed the 17-year-old in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26.

“It’s my understanding that Trayvon Martin got on top of him and just started beating him,” Robert Zimmerman told WOFL. “Martin said something to the effect of, ‘You’re going to die now’ or ‘You’re going to die tonight.’ He continued to beat George. At some point, George pulled his pistol. Did what he did.”

“He was punched in the nose. His nose was broken,” the 64-year-old Zimmerman continued. “He was knocked to the concrete. Trayvon Martin got on top of him and just started beating him. In the face. In his nose, hitting his head on the concrete.”

Only a shadow of the elder Zimmerman’s face is shown in the televised interview, because of fears for his and his 28-year-old son’s safety.

The comments came on the same day a surveillance video, taken at police headquarters the night of the killing, was broadcast by ABC News.
