MIAMI — Court records show George Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes, a nose fracture and two cuts to the back of his head after the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

ABC News reports the medical records were part of evidence released Tuesday that prosecutors have in the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman. He has entered a plea of not guilty and claims self-defense in the Feb. 26 shooting. A message left Tuesday evening with Zimmerman’s attorney was not immediately returned.

Zimmerman was treated Feb. 27 at Altamonte Family Practice. A phone call made Tuesday evening to the practice rang unanswered.

Some of the injuries were previously reported by The Associated Press based on video of Zimmerman at a jail sally port.


  1. I am annoyed by this reporting. While I know that they are reporting information as it is released, but without the context of who initiated contact and caused the confrontation this information is meaningless. The defense is trying to sway the public's sympathy toward George Zimmerman.

  2. Zimmerman was directed to stay by police dispatch. He pursed,stalked, got beat down by a younger person; brought the gun out if it wasnt already out and fired. GLAD TREYVON WHIPPED HIS ASS
