ABC News has posted a police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot. 

The video, above, shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who shot the teenager. Police say Zimmerman told them he shot Martin in self-defense after the 6-foot high school junior punched him, got on top of him then began banging his head into a sidewalk. Zimmerman was bleeding from his nose and back of his head, according to a police report, but the video, provided to ABC News by the city of Sanford, shows no obvious sign of injury. He was tended at the scene by paramedics but told them he did not need to go to a hospital, police reported.



In exclusive interview with The Washington Post, Trayvon Martin's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, respond to the actions taken by Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) on the House floor Wednesday to encourage lawmakers to stop racial profiling.
