Zimmerman Trial Point-by-Point

July 13, 2013 Updated: November 12, 2013

The trial for George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida, is over.

The jury, composed of six women, decided that Zimmerman is not guilty.

Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder over the shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was walking back from a convenience store when shot by Zimmerman after the two fought.

The shooting, which happened on a rainy night in February 2012, was in self-defense, says Zimmerman. The jury agreed.
