On Feb 26, 2012, Trayvon Martin was shot dead in Sanford, Florida. Unarmed, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin has been murdered by 28-year-old George Zimmerman, a white man of mixed ethnicity, on February 26 in Sanford (Peruvian and white American). The Sanford Police Department received a call from a community watch co – ordinator who saw Martin trying to walk from the a convenience store to a home of his father’s girlfriend. Zimmerman began following Martin and reported what he saw to them. Zimmerman shot and killed Martin in a subsequent confrontation.
Zimmerman told the police that he fired in self-defense when they arrived on the scene. Zimmerman was handcuffed and taken into custody by responding officers, and yet they did not officially arrest him because they could not find any evidence that contradicted his claim of self-defense, according to the police. There was insufficient evidence to convict him, despite the fact that Zimmerman’s storey was rejected by the lead homicide investigator who wanted to pay him with manslaughter. During the incident, recordings of Martin and Zimmerman’s phone calls were found.
