SANFORD – Defense attorneys in the trial of George Zimmerman called Trayvon Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, to the stand this afternoon to testify about the screams heard before his 17-year-old son was fatally shot.

On the stand, Tracy Martin described the days following the shooting of his son, including being notified by police that his son was dead and going to headquarters to listen to a 911 call.

“That killed my son, yes,” Tracy Martin finished the sentence.
