George Zimmerman is a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida who is on trial over the shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was walking back from a convenience store when shot by Zimmerman. 

The shooting, which happened on a rainy night in February 2012, was in self-defense, says Zimmerman. He has been charged with second-degree murder.

The trial is ramping up after jury selection on June 20 and opening statements on June 24.
