George Zimmerman (L) speaks on the stand as he answers questions from his his attorney Mark O'Mara in a Seminole County courtroom during his bond hearing on April 20, 2012 in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was shot by George Zimmerman, a member of a neighborhood watch in Sanford, Florida, who has been charged with second degree murder in the shooting.

New evidence shows that George Zimmerman, the man who killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, may have acted in self-defense. Zimmerman's defense team released a video of his interview with police shortly after the shooting, where he tells a very different set of events than we've heard so far.
