New video raises doubts about Florida gunman's story

By Fox 4 News Staff. CREATED Mar 29, 2012

MIAMI (AP) - Some legal experts say a newly released police video of a handcuffed George Zimmerman does raise questions about his story.
The video doesn't show any obvious cuts, scrapes, blood or bandages. No plainly visible evidence of a life-and-death struggle with Trayvon Martin. It was made about a half-hour after the shooting Feb. 26.
Zimmerman told police he shot 17-year-old Martin after Martin attacked him. His attorney has said Zimmerman's nose was broken in the fight and the back of his head was gashed.
A lawyer for Martin's family says the video shows Zimmerman's nose wasn't broken and he had no noticeable blood on his head and face.
Officials haven't released any paramedic or hospital records on the gunman. The governor has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the case.
