Zimmerman‘s injuries, according to a separate medical report prepared by his personal physician, reports that he sustained two black eyes and a broken nose. MSNBC.com reports that both medical reports will be part of more than 300 pages of paper documents and 67 CDs of witness statements, surveillance videos and other materials which should be made public soon.
Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman near his father’s home on Feb. 26 after purchasing a can of iced tea and a pack of Skittles. Zimmerman went into hiding soon after. He was eventually arrested and charged with second-degree murder for the shooting and the FBI is reportedly pursuing hate crime charges against the former neighborhood watch captain.
