Trayvon Martin 911 Call From Neighbors and Zimmerman (Audio)

Trayvon Martin 911 Call

Trayvon Martin was killed in Sanford, Florida by George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watchman.

On the evening of February 26, 2012, George Zimmerman went out to patrol the gated neighborhood in his vehicle as he did every night because of several break-ins had been reported in recent weeks. While out patrolling his neighborhood, Zimmerman saw a young black teenager with a hood over his head so he started to follow him. Zimmerman called the police emergency dispatcher to report a suspicious person.

In the 911 call the dispatcher asks Zimmerman if he is following Trayvon Martin in which he responds, “Yep.” The dispatcher tells Zimmerman, “Okay, we don’t need you to do that.”

The dispatcher and Zimmerman made plans to have police meet with him by the mailboxes, but Zimmerman changes his mind and tells the dispatcher to have an officer call him when they arrive and he’ll tell them where he is at.

Zimmerman violated the Neighborhood Watch manual which states, “It should be emphasized to members that they do not possess police powers. And they shall not carry weapons or pursue vehicles.”

Trayvon Martin, 17-year old was unarmed and walking home after buying candy and iced tea from a convenience store. A female friend of Trayvon Martin told ABC News, “Trayvon said this man was watching him, so he put his hoodie on. He said he lost the man. I asked Trayvon to run, and he said he was going to walk fast. I told him to run, but he said he was not going to run.”

A sequence of 911 calls come from neighbors in the area reporting of screaming and hearing gun shots. In the first 911 call you can hear Trayvon Martin screaming in the background. The dispatcher asked the woman on the phone if he looks hurt to her. The woman tells the dispatcher that she can’t see him and she doesn’t want to outside because she doesn’t know what’s going on.

In another 911 call from a neighbor, he tells the dispatcher that he heard screaming and a gun shot. He said they’re wrestling right in the back of his porch and added, there’s a black guy down and he thinks the person is dead outside his home. She tells him that they have several police officers headed in that direction.

In one of the 911 calls, screaming can be heard in the background as a woman tries to get help, you can then hear in the call two loud bangs of gun shots.

Sanford police said Zimmerman called 911 46 times since 2001, reporting disturbances, break-ins and other incidents. On nine different occasions, George Zimmerman reported a suspicious person.

George Zimmerman, 28-year-old has not been arrested and is not charged with a crime. He claims shooting Trayvon Martin was in self defense.

The case of Trayvon Martin’s death has been turned over to the State Attorney’s Office, which can decide whether to file charges or present evidence to a grand jury.

On Friday, Trayvon Martin’s parents called on the FBI to take over the investigation, because they say the can longer trust the Sanford police department. Sanford police Sgt. David Morgenstern said the department stands by its investigation but welcomes help from any outside agency. FBI agent David Couvertier said the agency has been in contact with Sanford police and is monitoring the case.

The Justice Department released a statement saying, “The department will conduct a thorough and independent review of all of the evidence and take appropriate action and the conclusion of the investigation. The government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person acted intentionally and with the specific intent to do something which the law forbids. Negligence, recklessness, mistakes and accidents are not prosecutable under the federal criminal civil rights laws.”

Nearly half a million people have signed an Trayvon Martin petition on wanting law enforcement officials to arrest Zimmerman.

    I was fortunate to see the 917/10 and 917/30 race at Road Atlanta in ’72 and ’73 respectively. If memory serves me, the 917 Can Am car was the first to break the 1,000 hp barrier in road racing. Until then, the McLarens were pushing close to 900 hp. Top fuel dragster were putting out 2000 hp at the time. Rumors had it that Porsche was ready to field a car with close to 2000 hp if the turbo panzers had not be written out of the rules for ’74. Possibly a little optimistic, but Donahue believed you could never have enough power. He once said he wanted a car that could lay down rubber from one corner to the next. As others here have said, those days are gone and will never return. For me, it was the most exciting time in the history of road racing.

  3. this didnt become a racist situation until it came out that everytime ziggerman called the police it was to report a SUSPICIOUS BLACK MAN and then he said a racial statement while on the phone and mr. ziggerman is looking more guilty by the moment because he was told not to follow this young man and he did anyway but yet his brother just stated on cnn that ziggerman didnt follow the man that he left his house to go to target. if ziggerman stopped following this young man when he was told to none of this would have happen!!! and ziggerman caused this situation. i know if im walking at night in the rain by myself and someone is following soon as they get close to me im goin to start fighting because any normal person would be scared for they life but that besides the case. one of the witness says she came out the house right after the shot and ziggerman is over top trayvon. if he is on the ground scraming for his life then shot trayvon out of fear for his life WHY WAS HE STANDING OVER TOP THE BODY??? then with the video that came out where he dosent have any VISABLE MARKS scars or bandages id trayvon was beating his ass so bad that he needed to kill the teenager why is there no type of bandages or anything applied to his head???? i sure they would bandage up scares that he recieved from having his head smashed into the ground!!! and most importantly if george ziggerman is so innocent why is he not out speakin on his own behalf??? why is his not trying to explain his side of the story and let it be known that no it didnt happen they way yall are saying?? but he wonders why everyone is against him!!!! and building up more anger!!! mr ziggerman is innocent until proven guilty but with everything thats been said from the 911 calls from the girl friends statement to his statements to his family where he did follow trayvon is showing that mr ziggerman is guilty!!! HOW CAN ANYBODY DEFIND MR ZIGGERMAN IS HE IS NOT OUT TRYING TO DEFIND HIS SELF??????

  4. How do you guys that say Treyvon is screaming for help know that it is not George screaming for help. Sounds more like an older voice to me, but I can’t say either way because I wasn’t there and neither were you.


    • Ha ha ha haaaaa, you are the definition of moron. The responsibility of neighbourhood watch is specifically to REPORT suspicious behaviour to the police. Zimmerman is a retard, as he took his suspicions about the kid into his own hands. His job isn’t to go chasing people around the street and tackle them to the ground and shot them just because they’re looking suspicious… The kid was helpless against this adult man who shot him dead. The kid did not have any guns, he went to the store for a midnight snack, literary to buy candy. What? The kid doesn’t have a right to go to the store??? This world is so fucked up. It’s actually fucked you think thats normal to do something like that. I hope that carnt gets chased down the street when he’s walking home from getting a snack at the shops, over powered by someone twice his age, tackled and then shot dead. BAM!

  6. Why is this fool still out he should be arrested. He was yelling for help. If you are being hurt how can you because a threat. That ass whip should be in texas to get the chair.

    He was asking for help and no one helped what is wrong with this world. If someone maybe would have help this young man might still be alive this is your community. You should know if it is really harmful. This man has taking the life of this young man. Hoodie my school shirt is a hoodie. Children wear hoodies all the time how would this cause a threat. This doesnt make any sense. If this young boy was white and his murderer was white or some other race would we have justice. This upset me to know that this world that we have worked so hard to make it safe for all; and still has people that would kill a young black man. Why because he ran cause this man is following him. Hell would you run if some man is following you. (unknown man or woman).

    This you man need justice and now not later not next week not this a** hole still walking around.

    This is crazy and to the murderer. How would you like it if some unknown man was following your child because she is wearing a hoodie and some pants. How would you feel if they shot her because she looked as a threat and felt threaten and ran and got chased and felt threaten and began to defend her self. and this murderer shot her.
    How would you feel you a** hole.

    I dont have any children but this man has not only hurt this young man,but his family and the people in the community and in the U.S.

    Why is this world this way. he murder this young man even if he was a gangster he pled for help this means he was no longer a threat. Why is this like this this is wrong this is not right.

    This young man was saying help me. no one helped this fake want to be cop killed him.
    Why would he kill this baby.

    My prayers go to the family. In the name of Jesus his justice will be. His murderer will be brought to the judge. God be with you and bring you peace.

    But for that a** hole— As we all know if he is let free something some one will make him pay.

  7. Zimmerman obviously had something else in his system besides stupidty. He continually repeated himself to the point of confusion. He didnt even remember he had just given his phone number to the dispatcher what was he really on. This man is worthless in my eyes he viciously took a childs life for no reason an that childs life had barely begun. I cringed when i heard that defenseless young man screaming for the help that never came. There is more than enough evidence to convict and i have no remorse for what is dealt his way. An eye for an eye, he should receive what he has given.

    • And how do you know who was screaming for help? It may have been George, the one who was fighting with this 17 year old innocent ‘child’.

    Read the Internet story: THE RACIST GERMAN SHEPHERD AND THE BULLDOG. Just google the title to access the story. Read it and pass it on!

  10. I am a white mother whos son grew up with a black boy. Growing up the boys went every where together.They were best friends from the time they were two, and today 25 yrs later they are still best friends. I know first hand the prejudices that exists in this world. I heard the comments that rude people made from both sides blacks and whites. As a mother I knew it was important to encourage this deep connection between the boys. I am 100%certain my son doesn’t judge a person because of his color. It is a Mothers duty to teach thier children what is right and what is wrong, regardless of color. My heart breaks for this young man and his family. I hope justice prevails.

    • Why are you and some of the others making this out to be a racially motivated thing? A Hispanic guy ended up killing a young black guy. A tragedy, definitely, but where is there a racial thing, besides in some of you making it up to be one? If you do listen to George’s 911 call you hear that he wasn’t sure what color the guy was until Treyvon approached him close enough to where he could see inside the hoodie.

  11. This is absolutely horrible. No wonder Trayvon was running, he was being followed by some guy in a truck! I would be running, too. Obviously, George is a psychopath and was planning to murder someone…just had to wait for the “right opportunity.” They better put him on trial with a jury, because someone would have to be mentally disabled to not see this.

  12. One thing is for sure, I’m a single mother and my son is all I have…If you come to me talking about he is dead and its behind some shit like this, Mr. Zimmerman wouldn’t have to worry about the police arresting him, cause his a$$ would already be 6 ft deep. If justice doesn’t prevail, I say the parents have the right to hunt his a$$ down and kill him. “An eye for an eye”…and that’s the kind of “Stand Your Ground” law, I prefer.

  13. this is not a justifiable homocide, its a cold blooded murder. i wonder what kind of evidence will be fabricated to cover this up. too bad this happened in Florida,the most crooked law in the u.s.

    My father worked for “Exclusive Cleaners” in Verona, NJ many years ago. He was the tailor and the spotter (used chemicals to remove spots from the clothes without ruining them). His boss (owner) asked him to deliver dry cleaned clothes on his way home to Essex Fells a pretty exclusive neighborhood. I know my dad looked pretty foolish because he drew attention to himself by driving slowly and u-turning when he missed the house number. Someone called the police. When the police came, they verified who he was, called his boss and found he had a legitimate reason to be in the area. He was not confronted or harrassed by some neighborhood vigilante. When this happened to Trayvon, my mind flashed back to my dad’s situation. It could have gone very wrong it there was a neighborhood watch person who was allowed to ‘take the law into his own hands’. Zimmerman had the confidence of one who carried a gun. If he is not dealt with, he will do it again. The fog of time will blunt his error. May God help the people of Sanford, Florida.

    • Very well said Paulita & thank you for sharing your story about your father . . . a perfect example of how it should have been handled instead of killing an innocent child.

    • Tracey, a ‘child’? Are you perhaps referring to the 17 year old teenager who unfortunately got killed? Or did you get hung up on his picture that is 5-6 years dated?

  15. They charge Micheal Veck 4 killing dogs but they can’t charge him 4 shooting &killing a 17 year old boy. They need 2 throw the whole. book @ his ass

  16. They charge Micheal Veck 4 killing dogs, but they let this man go 4 shotting & killing a young boy they need 2 throw the whole book @ his ass.

    • Exactly my point they quick to throw a black man in jail for dogs but a cold blooded killer white or watever he gets to run free.

  17. Why do all of you people keep calling the guy who killed Trayvon white? He’s Mexican. That is not white. Do any of you read? My goodness, every single comment says white this white that. Wake the f*ck up you illiterate pieces of sh*t.

    • Iis absolutely appalling that a country rich and powerful like the USA can behave so barbaric, Shame on you. That child did nothing wrong. You’re killing our children…mind your fucken business. Black white yellow…we all bleed the same color…shame you the police..George needs to be shot like the child did,,,shame shame shame

    • SoCalsurfer | March 21, 2012 at 2:38 am |

      America, love or leave it.

    • 1. He is mixed race, not Mexican (Mexican of course being Hispanic to most of us)
      2. He self-identified as White initially. He only switched to saying Hispanic when the case went “Nuclear.” His self identification is very telling.
      3. The police identified and still identify him as White.
      4. Even on census forms its understood that many Hispanics self-identify and are identified as White. In fact, ALL BUT ONE of my Hispanic friends mark White on forms where that is an option. Again that matters.

      And that’s why

    • Who cares if Zimmerman was white, black, purple, green, or hispanic…Jake? Or if Trayvon was white, black, purple, green, or hispanic….People are saying white because initially that’s what reports stated…who are you to call someone an illiterate piece of sh*t???? Look in the mirror NOW do you see the piece of sh*t!!!! This should not be about color or ethnicity…it’s about Justice for an innocent kid!!!

    • Jake I’m feeling you on that, he’s not white at all he’s a mexican and they need to place the blame on the right damn person.

    • Hi Jake;
      What color would you say Mexicans are? And what does color have to do with nationality? My suspicion is that you might be the kind of person Zimmerman is, and you know what I mean.


    • Doesn’t matter wat color he is not r concern or the boys parents. To me this punk is a cold blooded killer. Should have mind his own business and left that innocent boy alone he wasn’t bothering anyone. Wat goes around comes around justice shall be seved lock this animal up and throw bthe keey away on his ass. Don’t let himcome to da hood.

    • Jake ur an ass hole ur worrying about wat color this animal is should not matter. Wat does matter is an innocent kid life was takin by a heartless person that’s should matter. Wwho gives a fuck wat color he is justice needs to be served for this kid. Put this punk in jail that will make my day.

    • Felicia watever ur name is the got the right man u stupid ass. Y’all actin like ziggerman dot a care in the world. All y’all worrying about is this monsters damb race. Jake and felicia go to hell.

    • First of all, marking white (Caucasian) when you are not is deceitful, and are they not proud of who they are??? (however, this is just a small thing that came to my mind over the comment about someone’s friends marking white vs. hispanic)

      Clearly race is a factor in this if you listen to the 911 call when he mumbled the racial slur, but stop turning it around on all “white” people because we are not all that way. We are not going to defeat racism with more racism.

      This is a very sad story of an ignorant man who appears to have bullied a child into getting scared and running and then killing him, again, out of stupidity!

    • Zimmerman is half white and half Peruvian.

    • Jake is 100% correct, George Zimmerman is as much Hispanic as our president is black. Or wait, do we have a white president now?
      Unless those of you who keep calling Treyvon an innocent child were there, then you don’t know anymore about what happened than the next person. Me included. And he wasn’t a child – quit getting hung up on the 5-6 year old dated photo that is being used. He was a 17 year old teenager, who would have turned legal adult next year.

  18. Uuugh this makes me want to puke. I can’t believe they wouldn’t arrest him, just… ugh. He’s the one who deserves to be shot in the head.

  19. I am so tired of this same scenario every time. I am tired of tears and injustice. I only hope that with the way I am feeling right now that I am don’t run in to someone like Zimmerman, because I can guarantee you the story would not run like this. If the situation was reverse and Trayvon Martin was alive he would be in jail. It is time for this to stop. No more stories such as this should exist anymore. Its time for us to arm our young men with the same amunition that they face.

    • Gwen Rolle | March 20, 2012 at 7:48 pm |

      BizzyM are you sure you heard what you heard or what you wanted to hear. What is your point that he didn’t shoot Trayvon, that it was a mistake. Are you really trying to justify the killing?

  20. This is very sad.As for all the 911 callers,I commend you for your part in reporting this tragedy;I do wish someone could’ve annonymously made some sort of attempt to scare the gun toting,trigger-happy clown away by making some sort of noise,anything.I totally understand everyone was afraid but most of you saw the perp wrestling with this child with your own two eyes;in other words,instead of looking,toss something on the pavement,blow a whistle or something.I just feel like this was a life that could have been saved.I honestly feel more could have been done to prevent this child from being murdered in cold blood.I express my sincere condolences to the Martin Family and Friends.Please DO NOT allow this animal to go unpunished;otherwise,who would be next?Z-MAN should NOT be protected by any law.He disobeyed police orders by following this young man;you can actually hear him running in this audio while he’s talking to the police.When asked to stop and let the proper authorities handle this child whom was only carrying an iced tea and skittles,Z-MAN kept running behind him anyway with the intent to KILL this child anyway.What law is there that says this is right?PLEASE!!!I am SOOOOO upset about this.I pray for the world;look at what we have walking,driving amongst us.This clown did NOT feel threatened by this young man because there was never a need to in the first place.Please lock this animal up and throw away the key!!!!

    • Moderate Singer | March 20, 2012 at 7:40 pm |

      OMG… This is rediculous. See I’m a young person myself and from what I’ve been hearing going around makes me scared to even go outside anymore; that’s a shame that people can barely walk out the house now with out worrying about nothing or nobody. To all the people this may concern I hope you the best and nothing less. Pray for our youth and our future, GOD BLESS US and OTHERS.

  21. OMG, WTH… does anyone listen to these calls!! Zimmerman starts to follow him, dispatcher says “we don’t need you to do that.”, Zimmerman says, “OK” and a few seconds later, you can hear him get back into his truck!!! He didn’t follow him!! He turned around and went back to his truck!!!!!

    Is any one listening!?!?!?

    • Yeah…he got back in his truck so he could continue to follow him in his vehicle. Duh. I’m sorry but can we get some thinking humans on this thread please!?

    • bitch……. u sound dumb af……the man is a killer …. ur not listening, the boy obviously was being followed and even if he was doin something wrong….how the hell did the boy end up dead….(by the wind blowing on his face???) NO!! Zimmerman definitely killed him…..and why did his gf reportedly say she heard Zimmerman approach the boy…then (scuffles) Zimmerman killed the boy

    • Maybe it was his ghost that killed him then. Curious George shot him… goes without saying that he disregarded the police instructions not to follow him.

      Some bad sh#t is gonna go down for George.

    • Yep. He got back in his vehicle, he never went after Trayvon, there weren’t screams for help for several seconds around the 7 minute mark, the kid is home alive and this whole thing is a figment of our imaginations.

    • N.O. BOUND | March 22, 2012 at 4:15 pm |


  22. Negligence can’t be prosecuted? What about CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE?

    • Wat r u talking about an inoccent kid was killed for nothing people need to focus on that and stop takin this animal side. He had nothing else better to but takes someomes elses life that was promising. Maybe somoemt should take his just sayin.

  23. I am shock at what is going within this investigation, it doesn’t take rocket science to figure this out. Simply going to the store and returning, met by a SELF-APPOINTED neighborhood watchmen, who has no regards to instructions from the police dispatcher, and still advanced towards a KID. It is a grave-injustice and needs to be thoroughtly examined, the Department of Justice, or any one of those letter agencies needs to step up and do what is right. The Martin family need JUSTICE for what is considered MURDER, there is no clear way to view this situation. My prayers goes out to the Martin’s family, and friends. May God see you through this time of great pain.

  24. I just dont understand why he hasnt been arrested! whether it was self defense or not he ended a 17 year old boys life. For no reason HE(ZIMMERMAN) NEEDS to be put to rest. this is ridiculous. there is no justification for that. NONE.

    wow thats a shame zimmerman like omg all he did was go to the store to buy some skittles and ice tea at halftime and u should of listenened to the police when they said stay in the car and like foreal if every single black person looks suspicus to u it doesn’t mean u half to shot them wat if that happened to one of ur owe kind u will be like it is not good to kill i wish someone said nigga get off the stand when u were at court .R.I.P TRAYVON MARTIN AND I HOPE ZIMMERMAN GOES TO HELL AND ROTIES

  26. This is sad Zimmerman didn’t sound scared at all…he sounded like he was just covering himself with the police call for what he had planned. He said the boy was coming toward him, but if u listen at his voice he had no fear in it at all…he knew exactly what to say to try in cover up what he was about to do.

    • I agree, Because there was no need to continue following him after he spoke to the police, and based on what the girlfriend had stated it def shouldn’t have escalated to where it did. It was All Pre-meditated.

  27. Listening to these calls, and Trayvon screaming for his life has sadden me. Mr. Zimmerman needs to be in jail, he shot that young man for no reason.What is this world coming too..PRAYING FOR THE MARTIN FAMILY

    • I agree with you . Listening to the 911 call of Trayvon pleading for help completely tore at my hear.. Iam a mother of 2 sons. I cried for this child and his parents. What type of person could shoot a human being down like that. I would say a person who
      is heartless and full of hate. Trayvon was crying out for HELP from anyone in Twin Lakes. It was great so many called the police department, even though it was too late to save this promising youngman life. It also hurts me as a mother that something like this happened in 2012 in America. Please help Trayvon Martin by PRAYING FOR HIS FAMILY AND OUR COUNTRY. We have a lot of work to do.

      Tearful Parent

    • I agree. It made me cry. It made me angry that others where not even interested in trying to help him. And it made me wonder if I would do the same thing. I don’t care if witnesses say they Zimmerman was being beat up by Trayvon. He mentions that he believes this was a teenage kid several times in the first part of the tape. He knew this was a child, he should have called the cops and let it go! He willingly killed a child!

    • Now that we know that it is more likely that Zimmerman was the one screaming for help in the 911 calls, do you still feel the same?


    • Huey Newton needs Educated! | March 20, 2012 at 6:53 pm |

      Huey, I find your comment to be very offensive. When you your self dont even know the facts . Yes it seems G. Zimmerman (A MAN WHO IS –SPANISH–) is very wrong for what has happened in this case and I as what you call a White Cracker feel very sorry for that boys family and friends .No one should endure that. I have many friends who are a mix of many races, their are no bad races just bad individuals! I find your hatred to be almost as bad as what has happened here. This type of hatred is why the world can not get along so grow up !!!! IF YOU WANT THE WORLD TO BE A BETTER PLACE IT MUST START WITH YOU!

    • Paulita Abou-Aly | March 20, 2012 at 10:16 pm |

      Let cooler heads prevail. Remember, this is exactly how George Zimmerman got into this mess. He went looking for trouble. “Trouble looks for no man, tis man who looks for trouble…” old proverb.

    • Well, I am a “white cracker/white B” as you call it and I find this to be completely uncalled for, you are no better than Zimmerman, it’s that same attitude he had calling racial slurs towards a black child! That’s where it starts. Your racism is no better than Zimmerman’s! Everyone needs to get over the racism towards every race, then and only then can we grow a prosper as PEOPLE. And, for the record, he wasn’t only “white” from what I understand he was Hispanic as well (not that it should matter) but, you only see the color of his skin and are too blind to the facts by your own hatred.

  29. just send mexican to mexico no green cards and dem otha ppl scared to go help a yung man fighting for his life

    21st century African-Americans in Florida, like all their ancestors, still do not have the right of equal protection. Florida’s paid police executioners concur that unpaid wannabee executioners can kill African-Americans as long as they say the right code words afterwards. But that ain’t racism, or murder or even manslaughter. This was business as usual. White men have the right to “self-offense” with black men.

    The 1850 Supreme Court assertion that “Black men have no rights that white men are bound to respect” is still the norm in America! Perhaps next week we’ll be reading about Zimmerman’s 250 pound brother killing a 17 year-old, 140 pound black girl for refusing his sexual advances, then claiming self-defense. Sanford police would undoubtedly be cool with that too. It works!

    You (George) left home looking for someone your problems to blame.
    You (Trayvon) see a big white man staring stalking while talking on the phone.
    You (George) are setting the stage for the crime you will commit with your gun
    You (Trayvon) ran afraid and confused done nothing wrong
    You (George) against law enforcement instructions hunted him down like a dog.
    You (Trayvon) asked “what you following me for” your life in fear
    You (George) determined not to let this __hole get away said “why are you here”
    You (Trayvon) prepared to fight a battle that could not be won
    You (George) had judged him and the jury was your gun.
    You (Trayvon) have been silenced for life
    You (George) go home to your loving supportive wife

      This is truly ridiculous to know that I could walk home from work today and be shot because Im walking…simply walking. Tragic

    • I pray for those who have hate and darkness in their hearts. Wake the hell up the only difference between any human is the color of the skin and hair texture. But we all have the same inside, brain heart lungs intestines etc. . This angers me. Only God can save you…..if you wake up. Some people are so damn stupid.

    • Very sad song but ver well said Liesta. You should definately be a song writer.

    • May I please have permission to use this poem/song for a little memorial for Trayvon that I’m going to set up on the sideboard in my office? I’m White, but my son is mixed race, and now when he goes south to visit his mother I’m going to be terrified, I thought this type of thing was over even in the South.
