Report: Photo taken shortly after Trayvon Martin shooting said to show bloody George Zimmerman

SANFORD, Fla. - A photograph taken three minutes after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed is said to show George Zimmerman with bloody cuts on the back of his head, according to ABC News.

Zimmerman maintains he shot the 17-year-old in self-defense on February 26.

The person who took the photo after Martin was shot said he encountered a "wobbly" Zimmerman.  The time stamp on the photo shows it was taken three minutes after the shooting.

If genuine, the image could be used to back up the claim of self-defense.  Special Prosecutor Angela Corey has said she saw all the evidence before she charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder.
