Trayvon Martin Confronted His Shooter, City Reports

George Zimmerman told police in Sanford, Florida, that he shot Trayvon Martin after being punched in the nose and having his head slammed into the sidewalk, said City Manager Norton Bonaparte Jr.

Bonaparte confirmed an Orlando Sentinel report yesterday that detailed Zimmerman’s side of story. Zimmerman, whose mother is Hispanic and father is white, claimed self-defense in the Feb. 26 shooting of Martin, an unarmed, black 17-year-old, and hasn’t been arrested.
