SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla.
WFTV just learned Friday morning about a picture of gunman George Zimmerman, taken just three minutes after the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead.
The picture reportedly shows cuts on the back of Zimmerman's head, with blood trickling down.
Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Martin on February 26 in a gated Sanford community, claimed he killed Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Martin.
The picture would seem to back up Zimmerman's claim that Martin slammed his head against the sidewalk.
That picture could be part of the evidence shown to the judge in court Friday morning during Zimmerman's bond hearing.
ABC News is breaking more on this story on Good Morning America at 7 a.m. on Channel 9. We'll have more on Central Florida's TV 27 at 7 a.m.
Meanwhile, Trayvon Martin's parents will come face to face for the first time with Zimmerman on Friday.
Zimmerman is due in a Seminole County courtroom for a bond hearing at 9 a.m.
After a week and a half behind bars, Zimmerman may be walking out of jail to await trial on a second-degree murder charge.
The parents of 17-year-old Martin are expected in the courtroom during the bond hearing.
Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara will likely argue to Judge Kenneth Lester that Zimmerman is not a flight risk, pointing to fact that Zimmerman turned himself in immediately when charges were filed.
Judge Lester must decide if Zimmerman will be offered bond.

.....and there was a lot of blood at the OJ crime scene,but his jury STILL let him go!
“Zimmerman is GUILTY!” was expected from the usual baiters and haters, but from the alleged freepers it was especially loathsome and vile.
They’ve been pretty quiet, too.
Did we ever see an apology or “I was wrong” post from any of them?
The person who took the photograph told ABC News he heard Martin and Zimmerman fighting before the shooting and that after Martin was killed, Zimmerman asked the photographer to call Zimmermans wife, allegedly blurting out, Man, just tell her I shot someone.
GPS and other data embedded in the photo shows it was taken at the scene with an iPhone just three minutes after the shooting, according to ABC News.
ABC News said the photographer said gunpowder marks were clearly visible on Martins hooded sweatshirt.
SO the photographer has experience identifying GPR on clothing?
That would presuppose some integrity.
Don't hold your breath.
Oddly enough, the two Lesbians who claimed they came outside and saw Zimmerman straddling Trayvon and are absolutely sure Zimmerman is guilty, never mentioned seeing the blood on his head.
Thanks for posting and THANK GOD that this photo has come out. I pray that it will go viral, and utterly discredit the race-baiters, the Black Panters, and the corrupt MSM and politicans.
Odd, then, that the EXIF data has been scrubbed from the version posted on the WFTV website.
A skeptical observer might think they were still trying to shape the narrative.
Shirley not !
Thats not a little wound....he was getting his skull bashed in
Hell yes you shoot if you got a gun
You are absolutely correct. When confronted by superior numbers (2 or more), or if you are a senior citizen and have disablities, you are much more likely to suffer a life-threatening event that younger people could survive.
“The Zimmermans should be able to win some major lawsuits soon.”
Sad to say but winning lawsuits against this crowd is useless. Still waiting for Sharpton to pay the multi million dollar judgement against him for slander won by that prosecutor who Sharpton and Brawley accused of raping Tawana Brawley. I really hope that the prosecutor has an outstanding garnishment against this piece of garbage for his wages on MSNBC and any renumeration the dirtbag gets from his activities as a race hustler.
Personally, I think he's got a damn good case on all accounts.
Not so. That is what Photoshop is for. They could post a picture of a Klan robe in his hands. And they would do that.
Aren’t there ANY laws on the books that can hold the media accountable for judging this guy while knowingly witholding information that counters their reporting? This kind of reporting should be criminal. This mans life was in jeopardy as a direct result of the media drumming up tensions. I hope Zimmerman plans to sue the media, Sharpton, and a varitable host of others who jumped on this bandwagon knowing they were peddling something false.
Fox is showing the hearing right now. (Bond hearing) and Zimmerman is also going to request to leave the area because of the danger he is in per Fox.
2 hour hearing per Fox. It is know as an “Arthur” hearing in Florida.
In states that include that little detail if you feel that the person assaulting you will severely injure you then the use of deadly force is acceptable.
Shouldn´t be that hard to spot if the shot was point blank. Also, clearly visible GPR means that the shot was most likely at very close range, no?
Which would be consistent with the story of a close-range struggle?
Here we go.
