In his first interview since the Trayvon Martin shooting, George Zimmerman’s father told WOFL that Martin beat his son and threatened his life.
Robert Zimmerman’s face was not revealed in the 20-minute interview with Valerie Boey, which aired on the Fox O&O’s 10 p.m. newscast yesterday (watch above).
“After nearly a minute of being beaten, George was trying to get his head off the concrete, trying to move with Trayvon on him into the grass,” Robert Zimmerman said. “In doing so, his firearm was shown. Trayvon Martin said something the effect of, ‘you’re going to die now,’ or ‘you’re going to die tonight,’ something to that effect. He continued to beat George and at some point George pulled his pistol and did what he did.”
