George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the February shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, recounts in "vivid detail" what happened between him and the unarmed teenager on Feb. 26, in an interrogation video released by his defense team. Zimmerman, who has pleaded not guilty to the charge, told police that he took his "gun, aimed it at [Martin], and fired one shot," after Martin allegedly punched him several times. The one-hour and 11-minute video was also used by police to perform a computerized psychological stress test, the results of which police have not disclosed. A video reenactment of the altercation, in the area where Zimmerman first spotted Martin, has also been released.
