George Zimmerman says Trayvon Martin shooting was 'God's Plan' in Sean Hannity exclusive interview - VIDEO
Says sorry but expresses no regret over shooting teen
'I meant that I was going in the same direction as him to keep an eye on him so I could tell the police where he was going,' Zimmerman told Hannity. 'I didn't mean that I was pursuing him.'
Zimmerman confessed to Hannity that he never intended to pursue the unarmed teen in defiance of the law enforcement dispatcher's insistence that, 'We don't need you to do that.'
Instead Zimmerman said he moved away on foot toward his own home to wait for police, when Martin surprised him.
'He asked me what my problem was,' Zimmerman said, adding that when he reached for his cell phone Martin punched him and broke his nose.
Zimmerman told Hannity: 'He started bashing my head into the concrete sidewalk. As soon as he broke my nose, I started yelling for help because I was disoriented and he started slamming my head into the concrete.'
Ambulance workers told a court that Zimmerman's head was covered in blood after the shooting, and that the lacerations on his head 'would probably need stitches.'
Meanwhile Zimmerman's lawyers have tried to establish that he might have thought he had suffered a 'life-threatening injury.'
Zimmerman said he moved toward the grass to avoid having his head hit the concrete. Martin, he says, was 'cursing, telling me to shut up and, finally, he told me he was going to kill me,' Zimmerman told Hannity. Then he claims that Martin saw his gun.
'He said, 'You're going to die tonight,' Zimmerman told Hannity. Zimmerman said he believed he felt Martin's hand moving for the gun, but Zimmerman reached it first. He pulled the trigger.
Zimmerman told Hannity he would like to take the opportunity to apologize to Martin's family.
'I would tell them that, again, I'm sorry,' he said. 'I am sorry that they buried their child. I can't imagine what it must feel like. And I pray for them daily,' he said.
