During his first interview since killing Martin in February, Zimmerman tells Sean Hannity of Fox News that he feels the events of February 26 are "all God's plan." Appearing with Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman describes Martin's body language on the night of his death as "confrontational," adding that Martin attacked him, breaking his nose with a punch and knocking him to the pavement. Zimmerman also says that Martin reached for his gun and told him that he was going to die, thus giving him no choice but to shoot Martin once in the chest.

The interview also reveals that Zimmerman was unaware of the "Stand Your Ground" law the night of the murder.

Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump calls the interview "a gift," and special prosecutor Angela Corey says she intends to reference the interview during the trial.
