ORLANDO, Fla. — Sanford, Fla., police marched a handcuffed George Zimmerman into police headquarters the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, and a video shot by a security camera picked up no obvious sign of injury to the neighborhood watch volunteer.

The video debuted Wednesday evening on ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer.”

Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon, an unarmed black 17-year-old from Miami Gardens Feb. 26.

Police say Zimmerman told them he shot Trayvon in self-defense after the 6-foot high school junior punched him, got on top of him then began banging his head into a sidewalk.

Zimmerman was bleeding from his nose and back of his head, according to a police report, but the video, provided ABC News by the city of Sanford, shows no obvious sign of injury.

He was tended at the scene by paramedics but told them he did not need to go to a hospital, police reported.

The video shows a somber Zimmerman, hands cuffed behind his back, stepping from a patrol car, surrounded by several officers, walking through a door, then returning.
