trayvon martin 911 callUPDATE: 12:30 A.M. EST

The Orlando Sentinel reports:

[911 calls] were released [to the public] after Trayvon’s family spent two hours with city officials, listening to the calls that documented the 17-year-old’s last moments alive.”

In one of the 911 calls … a man reports that “they’re wrestling right in the back of my porch. There’s a black guy down. It looks like he’s been shot and he’s dead.”

Family members would not comment after listening to the tapes.

“They are overwhelmed by grief at what they heard this evening,” Crump said. “The last seconds of his life were in absolute fear.”

The boy’s mother could only listen to about half of the recordings, Crump said. His father broke down near the end, Crump said, “and cried like a baby.”

Both lawyers characterized what they heard as “murder” and said Zimmerman should be arrested immediately and federal authorities should take over the case.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The parents of a Black teenager fatally shot by a white neighborhood watch volunteer want the FBI to take over the investigation.

The parents of Trayvon Martin told an Orlando, Fla., press conference Friday they no longer trust the Sanford Police Department. Their 17-year-old son was fatally shot last month as he returned to a house in a Sanford neighborhood during a visit from Miami.

Sgt. David Morgenstern says the department stands behind its investigation but welcomes another agency “to scrutinize and review” the case.

George Zimmerman told police he shot Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman called 911 to report a suspicious person. He was told to stay in his car and an officer would be there shortly. But Zimmerman exited his car, fought with Martin and eventually shot him. Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman hasn’t been arrested.
