Basically, Martin had been suspended from school for possession of a marijuana baggie (irrelevant regarding the shooting, other than he might have been in a bad mood). Zimmerman had been tailing him on foot, lost sight of him, and returned to his van when Martin confronted and punched him. Eyewitnesses say that Martin was on top and beating Zimmerman, pounding his head in the ground. A witness threatened to call 9/11, at some point Martin got off Zimmerman, and Zimmerman shot him.
