A witness told Florida cops that he saw Trayvon Martin straddling George Zimmerman and pummeling the neighborhood watch captain MMA style shortly before the unarmed teen was felled by a gunshot to the chest.
The witnesss account was included in Sanford Police Department reports released today.
Interviewed by cops about 90 minutes after the shooting, the witness--whose name was redacted from police documents--said that he was inside his home when he heard a commotion coming from the walk way behind his residence.
The man recalled seeing a black male, wearing a dark colored hoodie on top of a white or Hispanic male who was yelling for help. The black male, he added, was mounted on the white or Hispanic male and throwing punches MMA (mixed martial arts) style.'
The witness--who was in his living room and about 30 feet away from the confrontation-- said he called out to the two men that he was dialing 911. He then heard a pop, police reported, and saw the black male laid out on the grass.

I’ve been wondering if Martin tried to get Zimmerman’s gun.
Incredible. He’s got the body of an extremely fit 25 year old.
Trayvon acting as referee in an interracial street brawl:
In the original statement to police by Zimmerman, he said that Martin grabbed for his gun, so he grabbed for it, and during the struggle... boom... Martin keeled over backwards.
IIRC, Mr. Zimmerman said that while he was on his back, Mr. Martin saw his gun (which was in his holster/waistband), and made some remark like "Now I'm going to get you", and grabbed for the gun. Zimmerman did too. Guess who probably got it by the barrel and pulled on it while it was aimed at his chest?
Not if his front room window is 30 feet from where the dead guy bled all over the place.
What the hell took this little tidbit so long to see the light?
“The actions by all of these in this case are reprehensible.”
INCLUDING the PROSECUTOR! Zimmerman should be freed NOW, and sue Florida for $$$$$!
The best site I’ve seen for info on the Martin/Zimmerman case. Extensive photos, videos of Martin fighting, all kinds of stuff.
This would support the idea that Trayvon may have had a hold of the guns's slide when it was fired.
Of course, it was a Kel-Tec, so it may have just malfunctioned on its own.
