Police Report Supports George Zimmerman's Account
Officer Timothy Smith arrived after shots were fired as well. He observed “a white male, wearing a red jacket and blue jeans.” He also observed Martin lying face down in the grass. According to Smith:
Zimmerman stated that he had shot the subject and he was still armed. Zimmerman complied with all of my verbal commands and was secured in handcuffs. Located on the inside of Zimmerman’s waist band, I removed a black Kel Tek 9mm PF9 semi auto handgun and holster. While I was in such close contact with Zimmerman, I could observe that his back appeared to be wet and was covered in grass, as if he had been laying on his back on the ground. Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and back of his head.
Zimmerman was placed in the police car and give first aid. “I was yelling for someone to help me, but no one would help me,” Zimmerman told police.
So far, the evidence seems to line up with Zimmerman’s story, as do the police officers’ description of the physical evidence at the crime scene.
