  • SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman says he was not pursuing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin the night the teen was fatally shot.

    Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the teenager's death.

    He made the statement Wednesday in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

    When asked to explain what he meant when he told a police dispatcher he was following Martin, Zimmerman said he was "going in the same direction as him so I could keep an eye on him so I could tell police where he was going."

    The neighborhood watch volunteer claims he was defending himself when he shot and killed the unarmed Martin on Feb. 26 in a central Florida neighborhood.

    His attorney says he agreed to the interview because he's hoping to receive donations to Zimmerman's defense fund.
