5. He didn’t know he’d shot Trayvon
Zimmerman told Hannity:
HANNITY: When you think back, there was one report or police report that actually said you didn’t know after you fired, you didn’t think — you thought you missed?
ZIMMERMAN: I didn’t think I hit him, yes.
So what happened immediately after the shooting, then, George? I understand one guy came out and he said he had a flash light, that he spoke to you, and you said to call your wife, tell her what happened, “that I shot somebody.” Do you remember that conversation?
ZIMMERMAN: The conversation I had with the gentleman or –
ZIMMERMAN: Yes, sir.
HANNITY: You do remember that conversation?
And he did talk about it, and his suggestion was — that you were very matter of fact about it. Do you remember what you said to him? Do you think you were in a state of shock? Did you know that Trayvon — when did you know that Trayvon had died?
ZIMMERMAN: When I — probably about an hour after I got to the police station.
But the witness in question, who was the first person on the scene after the shooting, told police Zimmerman told him he’d just shot someone, and asked him to call his wife.
