A Florida state attorney’s release Thursday of FBI reports surrounding the death of Trayvon Martin shows that his accused killer and self-appointed neighborhood watchman had a pattern of calling authorities about criminal activities and safety issues in the neighborhood.

The 284-page report from special prosecutor Angela Corey shows that George Zimmerman made a half dozen calls to Sanford police in the months leading up to his fatal February altercation with Martin, 17. Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the unarmed African-American’s death. Zimmerman, 28, has said he acted in self-defense.

The report is part of a Justice Department investigation to determine if Martin’s civil rights were violated and Zimmerman’s actions were racially motivated, and its findings could be used by both prosecutors and Zimmerman’s defense team.
