SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who says he shot Martin after he was punched in the nose, knocked down and had his head slammed into the ground.
Sanford police Sgt. David Morgenstern on Wednesday confirmed that the video being shown by ABC News is of Zimmerman. The 28-year-old’s head and face are visible throughout.
Zimmerman’s attorney has said his client’s nose was broken in the fight and the back of his head was gashed.
A lawyer for Martin’s family says the video clearly shows that Zimmerman’s nose wasn’t broken and he had no noticeable blood on his head and face.
Police have yet to arrest Zimmerman, touching off widespread public outrage and protests across the country.
