Trayvon Martin 7-Eleven Surveillance Video Shows Slain Teen Shortly Before He Was Killed. Trayvon Martin walked into a Sanford, Fla., 7-Eleven on Feb. 26, purchased a bag of Skittles and an Arizona iced tea, and before he was able to return to his father's fiancée's home, he was killed.
Surveillance footage from the convenience store that evening is among the evidence prosecutors released Thursday, ABC News reports. A short time later, Martin encountered 28-year-old George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, who called a 911 dispatcher to report "a real suspicious guy. " When Zimmerman told the dispatcher he was going to follow the suspicious person, he was told, "We don't need you to do that," but did so nonetheless. Experts say Zimmerman attorney made smart move.
