Dec. 3 (UPI) -- George Zimmerman shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in his gated community last February, and the neighborhood watchman has since maintained that he shot the teenager in self-defense. To back up his claims, Zimmerman's lawyers released the first clear color photo of what appear to be his facial injuries from the night of the shooting, releasing this statement along with the image:

This is a photo of George Zimmerman taken by a police officer on the night of February 26, 2012. A black and white photocopy of this image was provided by the State in the first Discovery. This high-resolution digital file was finally provided to the defense on October 29, 2012. This image was disclosed in the State's 9th Supplemental Discovery. In accordance with the updates to our media policy that we published on November 13, we will be making all public documents related to the case available on our website, including the rest of the State's 9th Supplemental Discovery as soon as we are sure it has been properly redacted according to the Court's stipulations on protecting information regarding specific witnesses.
