911 calls paint picture of chaos after Florida teen is shot

The death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teen who was shot while walking in his neighborhood in Sanford, Florida, has sparked allegations of racial profiling and calls for the gunman to be charged.

Federal prosecutors and the FBI will investigate the incident.

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who has acknowledged shooting Martin, has not been charged and says it was self-defense.

Martin, 17, was killed while walking to his father's fiancee's house in Sanford from a nearby convenience store.

Zimmerman first called police at 7:09 p.m. ET with concerns about a suspicious teen in the area, according to 911 tapes released by the Seminole County Sheriff's Department.

A 16-year-old girl who was on the phone with Martin most of the day last spoke to him around the time the incident allegedly began and lasted until 7:16 p.m. ET, when the call dropped. Almost immediately, 911 calls began coming in.  Police arrived on the scene at 7:17 p.m.

Several witnesses called 911 at 7:16, 7:17, 7:18 and 7:19 p.m. ET.

Below are the transcripts of the calls as Zimmerman and witnesses describe what they saw and heard that night:

7:09 p.m. ET

Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"

Zimmerman: "We had some break-ins in our neighborhood ... and there is a real suspicious guy. ... This guy looks like he's up to no good, he's on drugs or something. It's raining, and he's walking around looking about. "

Dispatcher: "Is this guy white, black, Hispanic?"

Zimmerman: "He looks black."

Dispatcher: "Did you see what he's wearing?"

Zimmerman: "A dark hoodie, grey hoodie, jeans or sweatpants or white shoes. He's walking around staring at the houses. Now he's just staring at me."

Dispatcher: "Location?"

Zimmerman: "He's near the clubhouse right now. Now he's coming towards me. He has his hands in his waistband. He is a black male. Something's wrong with him. Yep. He's coming to check me out. He's got something in his hands. I don't know what his deal is. Send officers over here."

Dispatcher: "Let me know if he does anything else."

Zimmerman: "These a**holes, they always get away. When you come in go straight to the left ... when you pass the clubhouse ..."

Dispatcher: "Clubhouse?"

Zimmerman: "Go straight in. Oh, s***. He's running ... down towards the other entrance of neighborhood."

Dispatcher: "He's running? Which way is he running?"

Zimmerman: "Down towards the other entrance to the neighborhood."

Dispatcher: "Which entrance is that, that he is running towards?

Zimmerman: "The back entrance."

[inaudible]

Dispatcher: "Are you following him?"

Zimmerman: "Yeah."

Dispatcher: "OK. We don't need you to do that. What's your name?"

Zimmerman: "George. Zimmerman."

Dispatcher: "Do you want to meet with the officer ..."

Zimmerman: "Tell them to come past the clubhouse and make a left then past mailboxes and they will see my truck ..."

Dispatcher: "What's your apartment number?"

Zimmerman: "It's a home. ... I don't want to give that out. I don't know who this kid is."

Dispatcher: "I will let them know where to meet you."

Zimmerman: "Have them call me, and I will let you know where I'm at."

------

During part of this time, Martin is on the phone with a 16-year-old girl. Below is an account of the phone call as relayed to In Session's Sunny Hostin by a lawyer for the Martin family:

Martin told the girl someone was following him, and she advised him to run. Martin said he isn't going to run but will walk quickly. Zimmerman caught up with him, and Martin asked Zimmerman why he was following him. Zimmerman then asked Martin his name and why he was there. The girl on the phone says she heard Zimmerman push Martin, and then the call drops. She tried to call Martin back, but he didn't respond.

7:16 p.m. ET

Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"

Caller: "Maybe both. I'm not sure. There's just someone screaming outside."

Dispatcher: "Is it a male or female?"

Caller: "It sounds like a male."

Dispatcher: "You don't know why?"

Caller: "I don't know why. I think they are yelling 'help,' but I don't know. Just end someone quick, please."

Dispatcher: "Does he look hurt to you?"

Caller: "I can't see him. I don't want to go out there. I don't know what's going on."

Dispatcher: "So you think he's yelling help?"

Caller: "Yes. There's gunshots."

Dispatcher: "How many?"

Caller: "Just one."

[inaudible]

Dispatcher: "Is he right outside?"

Caller: "Yes. Pretty much out the back, yes."

Dispatcher: "Is he in front of it or behind it?"

Caller: "He's behind my house."

Dispatcher: "I don't hear him yelling anymore. Do you hear anything?"

Caller: "No, I don't because I'm hiding upstairs. The gunshot was outside our house. You sent somebody, right?"

Dispatcher: "Do you hear any vehicles leaving or anything else?

Caller: "There's people yelling down there, but I don't want to go down there."

Dispatcher: "People are yelling now?"

Caller: "Yeah."

Dispatcher: "We do have officers on the way. Call us back if you see any vehicles leaving or anything."

------

7:16 p.m. ET

Dispatcher: "Police, fire or medical?"

Caller: "There's someone screaming outside."

Dispatcher: "Is that at where you are at?"

Caller: "Oh, my God, there is a gunshot, hurry up."

[inaudible]

Dispatcher: "Do you see anybody? I don't need you to go outside."

Caller: "There is someone screaming. I just heard a gunshot."

Dispatcher: "Do you see anything? I don't need you to go outside. Do you hear screaming or anything?"

Caller: "Hurry up, they are right outside my house."

Dispatcher: "OK, we [have] police and emergency, OK. Are you in Sanford?"

Caller: "I see police now."

Dispatcher: "You see the officer?"

Caller: "Yeah, but like it's behind the house. There is a dead body there. It's not the front entrance. Oh, my God."

Dispatcher: "Please tell me so I can tell them."

Caller: "If you are looking at my house, it's behind by my back porch."

Dispatcher: "Coming from behind your house?"

Caller: "Yes, the back porch."

Dispatcher: "Stay on the line and update me."

Caller: "I just heard screaming and a gunshot."

Dispatcher: "We have an officer there. Did you hear any more gunshots?"

Caller: "No, I don't hear. Hurry up, hurry up."

Dispatcher: "OK, we have officers out there, OK? If anything changes, give us a call back, but we do have officers there. One officer is there."

Caller: "OK, did he see anything?"

Dispatcher: "I'm not sure, ma'am, I just know he is there, and two other officers are on their way, OK? If anything changes or anything more, call us back. As far as you know, it's coming from behind your house near your back-porch area? When you hear screaming, was it screaming of female or male?"

Caller: "Male."

Dispatcher: "So, when you heard screaming, it was a male screaming?"

Caller: "Yes. And the guy on top had a white t-shirt."

Dispatcher: "What do you mean guy on top? Did you see a fight?"

Caller: "I don't know, I just looked out my window, and there was a guy on top wearing a white t-shirt."

Dispatcher: "A white t-shirt. Did you see what kind of pants? He was on top of what?"

Caller: "I couldn't see the person he was on."

Dispatcher: "But he was on top of a person?"

Caller: "Yes."

Dispatcher: "The guy with the white t-shirt, did he get up and run?"

Caller: "I don't know. Went to the phone to call you

Dispatcher: "White, black or Hispanic?"

Caller: "I couldn't tell, it was completely dark."

Dispatcher: "We have several units en route."

Caller: "Thank you."

7:17 p.m. ET

Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"

Caller: "I’m looking out my deck, and someone is screaming 'help,' and I don’t know. … I heard a bang. I’m looking out my window, out my backyard, and someone is yelling and screaming 'help.' "

Dispatcher: "You are not the only person calling. We have more than one officer on the scene and another on the way."

Caller: "Oh, my God. I see the person now. I see him walking. There’s a man coming out and people coming out with flashlights. Oh, my God. I don’t know what he did to this person. I can see there is a man walking out with a flashlight right now."

Dispatcher: "Was it a male or female voice?"

Caller: "The man is up right now. Someone is coming over. I’m glad other people called."

Dispatcher: "We should be out there right now."

Caller: "I can open my window and hear it."

Dispatcher: "You can still hear it?"

Caller: "I don’t know what is happening. Someone is laying on the ground."

Dispatcher: "What’s happening? Someone is on the ground? Someone has been shot? Calm down, stay on the line with me. Like I said, we have an officer on the scene, and we have other officers on the line."

Caller: "Oh, my God. They better hurry up. Someone is on the ground. Oh, my God! I see out my back window, sidewalk, grass, something is really bad. There is a man out here with a flashlight."

Dispatcher: "Is this person laying down in the street?"

Caller: "No, it's from my back window."

Dispatcher: "So is the person laying down in the street or in the grass?"

Caller: "The grass. Oh, my God! I think there is another gentleman with a flashlight. ... I think police. Oh, my God! He shot, he shot the person.He says he shot the person. He said he shot the person."

Dispatcher: "Who saying they shot who?"

Caller: "The people out there, a guy is raising his hands up, he's saying he shot a person. I think it's a police officer that's with him right now. arrest - uh - oh, my God, why - why (inaudible)"

Dispatcher: "Our officer is there, he has somebody at gunpoint. They're going to handle the situation from here."

Caller: "Oh! Oh, my God, somebody would be shot!"

Dispatcher: "It's probably going to be best if you stay inside your home for the time being, OK?"

Caller:" I know. I can't believe somebody's killed. He was saying help. Why didn't someone come out and help him?"

Dispatcher: "Listen, we don't know if they been killed ..."

Caller: "Yes, the person is dead, laying on the ground."

Dispatcher: "Just because he's laying on the ground don't mean he's passed. We have an ambulance on the way, and we are probably going to pick him up and take him to the hospital."

Caller: "I didn't see cause it was too dark, and I just heard people screaming 'help me, help me.' And this person shot him! He was like wrestling with him, you know what I mean, on the ground, from what I can see it was very dark. The man didn't try to run away or anything. I don't want to be a witness or anything. I'm scared. Oh, my god, a young boy, I can't imagine, I haven't seen anyone killed. This is a nice neighborhood. Oh, my God, I'm too scared to live here."

Dispatcher: "You don't have to worry right now. We have many officers on the way. Two officers on scene right now, we are on scene, OK?"

-----

7:17 p.m. ET

Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"

Caller: "Police. I just heard a shot behind my house. They are wrestling outside the back of my porch."

Dispatcher: "You just heard one shot go off?""

Caller: "It was either that or a rock at the window or something else. The guy's yelling 'help,' and I'm not going to help."

Dispatcher: "So you can hear someone yelling for help?"

Caller: "I'm pretty sure the guy is dead out here. Holy s***"

Dispatcher: "OK, we have several people calling in. Anything else that you heard?"

Caller: "A guy yelling, 'help.' Oh, my God! There is a guy with a flashlight in the backyard now. I think there's flashlights and a guy. ... I don't know if that's a cop. "

Dispatcher: "OK, we have several calls. Are you sure when you heard voices it was one person yelling, right?"

Caller: "There were two guys in the yard with flashlights, and there is a black guy down like he's been shot, and he's dead."

Dispatcher: "I have several officers going out there."

7:17 p.m. ET

Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"

Caller: "Medical. I think someone has been shot."

Dispatcher: "Why do you think someone has been shot?"

Dispatcher: "And it's in the backyard?"

Caller: "Yes."

Dispatcher: "And someone is laying in the backyard?"

Caller: "Yes, there are people around him now."

Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"

Caller: "This is 911, correct? Police or medical. Someone is yelling two doors down from me, screaming, hollering 'help, help, help.' There is an elderly man that lives down there. I don't know. I heard a gunshot. I don't know if it would be ambulance."

Dispatcher: "How many shots did you hear?"

Caller: "One."

Dispatcher: "How long ago?"

Caller: "As soon as I heard that I picked up the phone and called."

Dispatcher: "Before calling 911?"

Caller: "Yes. There is somebody out by my back porch. ... There is someone walking around with a flashlight. The police may already be here. I don't know. Someone is out there with a flashlight, but I did hear something."

Dispatcher: "We do have units there."

Caller: "Oh, my God."

Dispatcher: "And the screaming, was it a male or female you heard?"

Caller: "It sounded to me like a male, and from what I know and I've been here four years, there is an elderly man that lives like four doors down, um, north of me, and I'm inside."

Dispatcher: "Do you think it's coming from your area?"

Caller: "I don't know, ma'am, I'm standing at my back sliding glass door. I don't see anything but a flashlight shining around, but I did hear someone yelling 'help, help, help' or 'oh, my gosh' and something, then moaning and a boom, and I picked up the phone and called."

Dispatcher: "Did you see or hear anything else like a vehicle pulling away?"

Caller: "No, ma'am, because I'm in the back, and in the back there is just a walkway. It could have been someone in the front with a car, I don't know, but I was in the back. It was scary. There is someone still back there with flashlights walking around."

Dispatcher: "There should be someone on the scene ..."

-----–

7:19 p.m. ET

Dispatcher: "Do you need police, fire or medical?"

Caller: "My brother said someone got shot behind our house."

Dispatcher: "Is your brother out there right now?"

Caller: "No, he ran in the house."

Dispatcher: "Do you know who was shot?"

Caller: "No idea. ... I'm inside. It's behind our house. ... Yeah."

Dispatcher: "You didn't see or hear anything else? Did you hear the shot?"

Caller: "I heard something, and my brother ran in the house."

Dispatcher: "My brother saw it."

Dispatcher: "What did you see?"

Caller: "I saw a man laying on the ground screaming who needed help. I was going to go over there to try and help him, but my dog got off the leash, and I ran and got him, and I hurried around and down, and the screaming stopped."

Dispatcher: "Did you see the person get shot?"

Caller: "No."

Dispatcher: Did you know the person who got shot, or did you see the person with the gun?"

Caller: "No, I just heard a shot, and the screaming stopped."

-----–

Officers arrived on the scene at 7:17 p.m. ET, according to a police report.

Officers Timothy Smith and Ricardo Alayo said they noted a black male in a gray hooded sweatshirt lying face-down in the grass, as well as a white male in the area.

"Zimmerman stated that he had shot the subject and was still armed," Smith wrote in a police report.

Smith said he asked Zimmerman to hand over the weapon, a Kel Tec 9 mm, and handcuffed him.

"While I was in such close contact with Zimmerman, I could observe that his back appeared to be wet and he was covered in grass, as if he was laying on his back on the ground," Smith wrote in the police report. "Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and the back of the head."

The officers also made several attempts to revive Martin.

When police put Zimmerman in the back of the cruiser, he said, "I was yelling for someone to help me, but no one would help me," according to the police report.

    i think the police dept is more racist than mr. zimmerman,could it be a person of color has no respect from the cops there in that town?mr. zimmmerman may or may not be racist thats not the issue with him, he would have attacked a white kid with a mountain dew and a skateboard and hoodie. he simply wanted to play police and Trayvon did not
    want to play in his cop and robber game and was killed for it. shame on the police for not aressting this man for doing what they say they will never do....shoot an unarmed person.

    even when u take race completely out of it, there is NO REASON a 250lb man should be chasing down a 150 lb CHILD!!! Yes, he was a CHILD!!! Chase him down and shoot him because he defends himself. So what if Zimmerman had a bloody nose and wet back, he got that AFTER he chased him down. Trayvon was running AWAY, not towards him and Zimmerman even says that. I cant even talk about this because it gets me so irate. Things like this should not be able to happen and the person walk free, it doesnt matter if they are white black or purple.

    Hearing the young man's screams is chilling! If George Zimmerman had been the young white male walking through the same neighborhood and Trayvon Martin had been a 'neighborhood' watchman, how would the police have responded to the exact same scenario? Would they have just said, 'self-defense' and dropped it like with George Zimmerman? Taking the word of a black man over a dead white victim? Really?

    Didn't Trayvon Martin also had a right to be there? Mr. zimmmerman need to explain how this young kid threaded him, using a candy bag? or a soda can.
    It will be interesting to know what race Mr Zimmerman entered on this school and other records. Did he really entered his race as Hispanic or is he using that now as a facade?

    I believe the race aspect of this situation is getting blown out of proportion. The officers handled the situation to their knowledge of the law. The Chief of Police had stated that it was IMPOSSABLE to arrest Zimmerman. It is a gray and misunderstood part of a law. The family is not happy with the handling of the case, due to the outrage of the case, the FBI and other agency's are now involved. If they agree with Sanford police are they racists as well? Interpretation of the law, we will see what happens...

    Riviera, Obama, Sharpton, and any others who think they need to comment need to hold their tongue and wait to see how the case transpires. It is being handled and is not over.

    I see a lot of “If this was a white kid shot by a black guy” quotes. Live in the what if's, if you want. But I know for sure that IF that was the case, Sharpton, Jackson, Riviera, or Obama wouldn't give a crap about it.

    This is so easy to understand. If you cross-correlate the calls you can identify Trayvon as being pinned down by Zimmerman, who was on top of him wearing a white shirt, and Trayvon was screaming "help" and then was shot by Zimmerman. This is not stand your ground OR self defense, this is just cold-blooded murder. This is outrageous that Zimmerman has not been arrested based upon this evidence that clearly reveals Trayvon as consistently being the victim throughout this entire ordeal. I didn't want to think that Florida officers could be this racist but after reading the evidence with my own eyes, I don't know how else to explain their lack of action in nearly a month. The family should sue.

    TIMELINE

    7:09-7:15 – Zimmerman reports he is actively pursuing Trayvon. Dispatcher informs Zimmerman that he doesn’t need to follow him.

    7:16 – A neighbor reports a male screaming outside. The neighbor reports one gunshot.

    7:16 – A second neighbor calls to report screaming and then reports hearing a gunshot. The neighbor then reports seeing a “dead body.” The caller then reports that there had been a guy on top of someone else they could not see but the “guy on top had a white t-shirt”.

    And on and on the calls go like this…

    Okay this says it all!!!! The neighbors went to the window because they heard someone screaming for help. They see Zimmerman on top of Trayvon (Zimmerman has been identified as wearing the white t-shirt and Trayvon was wearing a dark hoodie). Then there is a gunshot and the screaming for “help” stops. They see a dead body. The dead person turns out to be Trayvon. I doubt it was Zimmerman screaming for help since he was identified as being on top of Trayvon. And gee, I would scream too if I was a 150 lb. kid with a 250 lb. man I didn’t know on top of me. Bottom line: This evidence doesn't collaborate with what Zimmerman said. These officers got duped by a pathological liar and murderer.

      Zimmerman wants to be an officer of the law. He has probably studied law enforcement. He is probably aware of the laws of Florida, and maybe even more so than the average non-law enforcement person. He probably knew exactly what to say, what to fabricate to get officers to suddenly stop thinking and just write "self-defense" on their report. I think ZImmerman should be psychiatrically eval'd. He is probably a manic with narcissism and pathological lying and manipulation.

    Wow-this is diferent than what CNN and MSNBC and all the others have been saying. They said it was Treyvon yelling for help, when they didn't know. It was not Treyvon's neighborhood – it was is father's girlfriends home. We now know that some type of physcal touching happened. I want to know why CNN keeps showing the younger pic of treyvon at like 10-12 in the peewee football uniforn pasted up next to Zimmerman's? Several maybe hundreds are getting the idea that this giant looking man up next to this little kid murded a 10-12yr old. So-if that's the type of image ur station was going for it worked. Also-your reporters keep sayin that the 911 call zimmermen phoned in said he referred to Treyvon like – "one of those black kids that dress in hoodies" – which he never did, the dispatcher asked him for a description there he said Black. I feel that your station and others have done an injustice to the whole story. I have followed this since the Am after this teen was killed. about 2 weeks ago- CNN and MSNBC HLN have put a racial spin on the story which is unfair to the parents of this poor teen, Zimmerman family, the police and us as a Nation. Should Treyvon been shot – NO! This is a horriable killing. However-adding in/ddeleting and misleading is terrible.

    When the police saw the blood on Zimmerman, did they investigate whose blood was on him? When a person shoots someone at close range, doesn't blood shoot out in all directions. So the police ASSUMED that this young man attacked Zimmerman based on appearances and the word of a man they told not to approach. And we all know the meaning of "ASSUME". CASE-CLOSED!!!!

    CNN is blowing the race issue way to much. Its like their fixed on it, why does it seem like CNN is one sided by having interviews with Martins family and all black people in the streets including the black panther party, whats up with that I had a white friend who was killed a year ago by a group of black boy teens when he was just driving (I guess was in the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time) and their was no CNN coverage, just the local news saying another teen dies today. There was no rally in his name, no one shouting race, no kkk in the streets shouting "no peace, no justice". This kind of thing happens all over the U.S. even the World with all different races which is unfortunate and something I personally know about, but this whole thing on tv with all the interviews and coverage is just sad for america.

    I have been following the story..it is very sad, and also as a victim of a hate crime, I see two victims. one that thinks that he is above the law because of a system that allows people to kill and discriminate without being held accountable and a young and unarmed black man suffering from discrimination and injustice from people that are getting paid to serve and protect us regardless of race and ethnicity. it happen at the work place and on the streets of America and until we get the the roots of the problem(the supreme court and the congress of the United states of America),nothing will never change.

    Zimmerman exhibits extreme paranoia and a rush to false judgment against a child walking through a neighborhood he belonged in, in the first place. And he claims he was protecting the neighborhood against a "criminal." We can only imagine what was going through Trayvon's mind. Would any of you feel threatened if a strange man followed you around in his car, then got of his car and started after you on foot, and behaved in the aggressive manner that Zimmerman himself reports? I sure would. I would be scared as hell. I would scream for help too. And when I watch this strange man pin me to the ground and pull out a gun, I would scream louder too. This guy acted like his own judge, jury, and executioner all along the way. Why isn't he arrested?

    A big question is who made physical contact first. The answer is in the witness testimony of Trayvon's girlfriend. She reports she heard conversation and then a sound of physical contact and the phone hitting the ground. I doubt that Trayvon, half the size of Zimmerman, tried attacking him first while holding his phone. Cause he didn't turn it off or put it down on the ground as the physical contact was the first event reported. Sounds like Zimmerman hit a kid on his phone. This guy's story ain't matching any of the facts. But I guess ZImmerman is just going to keep convincing Florida officers that he was in such perilous danger inside his locked, moving vehicle, his gun at his side, on the phone with 911 operators while this unarmed pedestrian child was running away from him. Why isn't this guy arrested???
