JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Trustworthy, reliable, a good man. Those are just three ways friends and co-workers described George Zimmerman to FBI agents.
On the flip side, a former fiancee told agents Zimmerman could sometimes be "territorial" and "over-protective" and that he had a "bad temper."
Like him or not, they all agreed on one thing, George Zimmerman "never exhibited any biases or prejudices against anyone."
It's just some of the insights we're getting into the man who admitted to shooting and killing an unarmed teenager in self-defense. The State Attorney's Office released hundreds of pages of new documents on Thursday.
"Something's wrong with him. He's coming to check me out. He's got something in his hands. I don't know what his deal is," Zimmerman told police on February 26th, the night he came face to face with 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
He says Trayvon attacked him, and that he fired one shot into the teenager's chest in self-defense. One officer with the Sanford Police Department indicated Trayvon's clothing may have had more to do with his shooting than his race.
He said gang members in the area often wear hoodies. The investigator described Zimmerman as "overzealous" with "a little hero complex." But again, the investigation said Zimmerman is not a racist.
The newly released evidence also shows Zimmerman went gun shopping in the weeks after Trayvon's shooting, telling one vendor he was afraid for his life and that he needed more guns.
Not long after that, he would be in jail, charged with second degree murder. Trayvon's family believes Zimmerman is a trigger-happy wanna-be cop, who zeroed in on Trayvon because he was a black kid walking through a white neighborhood. But according to the FBI documents, this isn't a black and white issue.
Right now, George Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder. He's awaiting trial in a safe house in Central Florida, after having posted a million dollar bond last week.
