(CBS News) SANFORD, Fla., - The trial of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murdering Trayvon Martin is still months away, but the investigation continues.
CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann has come up with new information about what happened that February night when Zimmerman shot the unarmed teenager in a gated community in Sanford, Florida.
At the heart of this case is what happened of the course of 90 seconds: from the moment Zimmerman hung up with a non-emergency dispatcher -- to the first 911 call from a neighbor.
Wednesday new details emerged from sources close to the investigation. A responder at the crime scene told CBS News that he and others saw wounds on the knuckles of one of Martin's hands as he lay dead on this lawn, suggesting Martin had thrown a punch.
Zimmerman told police he fired the shot at point blank range while on his back, as the 17-year-old straddled him.
He also told investigators Martin did not die immediately but mumbled either "it's over" or "you got me."

More like, “I’m gonna git yo punk ass”.
“Martin did not die immediately but mumbled either “it’s over” or “you got me.”
In either case, he was dead on.
Or, “I guess there is a ‘LIMIT’ after all...”
sounds like he watched too many cops-and-robbers movies.
He does know what real numbers are, right??
Zimmerman will not get a fair trial. That is for sure.
The race-baters will be screaming 'bout this. "Zimmerman trapped Trayvon! He didn't give him no chance to run!"
I would think that such a scenario would cause secondary evidence such as powder marks, bullet-path evidence, wound location and so forth that would be unique and impossible to explain away as anything but what Mr. Zimmerman has stated.
no no no he said “Help me Barack”
ABC enhanced martin’s last words, they were...yo cracker I no fool yo, ya got me?
I just saw a photo of Martin in his hoodie and the smiling Zimmerman picture at the site.
I thought he said “Darn, ya got me...”
Could mean "too far for powder burns, close enough that he couldn't miss."
>> no no no he said Help me Barack
or maybe “Help me daddy-O”
(well, same thing I guess)
