trayvon martin caseBy Briana Lopes

George Zimmerman claims that he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense, according to Sanford police. Although he still has yet to make a public statement — Zimmerman is thought to have gone into hiding — his official statement and account of what occurred the day that he shot and killed the unarmed teen has been unearthed by the Orlando Sentinel.

The self-appointed neighborhood watchman was en-route to the supermarket when he noticed Trayvon walking through his “gated community.” In response to what he claims was suspicious behavior — Trayvon “acting strangely and perhaps on drugs”– Zimmerman called local police.

Trayvon’s parents say he was visiting his father’s fiance, who lived in that community, and at the time Zimmerman spotted him, was returning from a near-by 7-Eleven convenience store.
