Newly emerged video reportedly shot by surveillance cameras at the Sanford, Fla., Police Department on the night of the Trayvon Martin shooting offers the public the first look at Martin’s assailant, George Zimmerman, on the night of the shooting.
ABC News, which obtained the video and released it Wednesday night, said it shows “no blood or bruises” on the handcuffed, trim- and muscular-looking suspect as he steps out of the back of a police cruiser, is frisked by an officer and walks escorted into the police building.
The quality of the video is not very high, but it appears to suggest that if Zimmerman was injured that night, the injuries were not serious.
The 28-year-old Zimmerman, who claims he acted in self-defense, has not been charged with any crimes, igniting a firestorm of controversy. Martin, the shooting victim, was an unarmed African American teenager. Zimmerman is half-Latino and half-white.
