SANFORD, Fla. -- There is new evidence in the case of a 17-year-old Florida boy shot and killed by a neighborhood watchman.
Hundreds of people piled into a small room Tuesday night to support Trayvon Martin's family. The 17-year-old was shot and killed a month ago by George Zimmerman. The FBI is now doing an investigation.
The family's attorney has new details from the last moment's of the teenagers life. It was a final call he made to his girlfriend. "Trayvon was running for it. Then the man and then he said he lost the man. The man was just following him close, like, walking to him, like fast. And the man said, what you doing around here? and then I heard a push. I know somebody pushed Trayvon because the handset just fell," Trayvon's girlfriend told the attorney.
Trayvon wasn't armed. Zimmerman, though is claiming self defense. Trayvon's father says that's impossible. "It can't be self defense. What's he going to attack with Skittles," said Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father.
New 911 calls reveal Zimmerman has a pattern of reporting African American males. In one call, you can even hear Zimmerman make a racial slur. The dispatcher asked, "What do they look like? White, black or Hispanic?" Zimmerman responded to the dispatcher saying, "Black males, two black males in their late teens."
In Trayvon's case, Zimmerman was armed. He was a neighborhood watchman who felt his neighborhood was in trouble.
There are Neighborhood Watch signs all over our community. Action News talked with a few members, who say they don't carry guns, and if a situation like what happened in Central Florida happened here, they would let police handle it.
Even after 911 dispatchers told Zimmerman not to follow Trayvon, he didn't listen. Now the teen's family struggling to come to grips with everything. "He was taken away and nothing can bring him back," said Trayvon's father.
To complicate matter's even more in this case, Florida state law allows a person the right to stand their ground and use deadly force if they feel threatened.
The outrage over Trayvon's death is becoming a national movement. Reverend Al Sharpton is planning a major rally in Sanford on Thursday.
