George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012. The incident occurred at The Retreat at Twin Lakes, a gated townhome community at which both individuals lived. Trayvon Martin, a high school student, was returning home after buying Skittles and a drink at a local store. A fight between Martin and Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch coordinator for the Twin Lakes community, preceded Zimmerman’s shooting of Martin. Trayvon Martin died at the scene of the incident.
