Video of Trayvon at 7-Eleven Before His Death

The teen is seen chatting with a clerk while making purchases.


The haunting surveillance video from the 7-Eleven that Trayvon Martin visited just before his untimely death has been released by ABC news, Mediaite reports.

The video shows Trayvon dressed in a gray hoodie, tan-colored pants and white sneakers while purchasing Skittles and iced tea. He's shown at the counter from two different surveillance angles. Trayvon visited the store shortly before encountering George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Fla., neighborhood watch captain, who has been charged with second-degree murder in his shooting death.

The video is the latest in a stream of information related to the case that has been released over the past few days. On Thursday, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey made public a cache of documents, and Mediate also posted newly public photos of Zimmerman from the night of the shooting.
