Audio: Calls from Zimmerman, neighbor capture last minutes of Martin’s life

Zimmerman and Martin

On the night of Feb. 26, George Zimmerman called 911 to report “a real suspicious guy.” About seven minutes later, he shot Trayvon Martin. Differing versions of what happened during that time have been based on Zimmerman's account, a call between Martin and his girlfriend, and what neighbors said they saw or heard, but mostly they've been based on two calls — Zimmerman's call and the first 911 call from a neighbor. The 911 call, which recorded the last 45 seconds of Martin's life, could be a crucial piece of evidence in the case against Zimmerman. Listen to the calls and read the transcripts here:

  • Zimmerman’s call
  • First 911 call
  • Other 911 calls

Several calls followed the first. Most reported hearing yelling and gunshots.
