Witness: Martin attacked Zimmerman
WTVT TV reports 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
I don�t believe this version for a second because it doesn�t make sense.
Zimmerman was the aggressor who had a gun following a 17 year old kid. The one in danger is the person who was unarmed. Was Zimmerman, 28, that much of a wuz to let a 17 yr old get the best of him? I wasn�t there but there�s no way the police can make a judgment at a crime scene even with a witness because it should be up to a court to decide what happened. A young man was shot dead by another man. That�s cause enough for an arrest and the details should have been lawfully sorted out in court-period!
