On February 26, 2012, George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. Martin was an African American teenager and 28-year-old Zimmerman is a man of mixed ethnicity (Latino and white American). Martin, who was unarmed, had been walking to the home of his father's girlfriend from a convenience store when Zimmerman, a community watch captain, followed him after calling the Sanford Police Department, saying he witnessed what he described as suspicious behavior. Zimmerman described the shooting to the police who arrived on the scene as self-defense. (via Freebase)
