Next up in the Florida prosecutors' evidence dump in the Trayvon Martin case: video, of Trayvon at the 7-Eleven, minutes before he was killed, reports the Guardian. The video shows Trayvon dressed in his hoodie and light-brown trousers, buying candy and a drink. He got into the altercation with George Zimmerman soon after leaving the store.

Prosecutors also released a recording of an interview with the girl Trayvon was talking to on the phone that night, and she said he complained that a "crazy and creepy" man was watching him from a car and then following him on foot, reports the New York Times. She heard Trayvon ask the man why he was following him. Then, "I hear this man, like this old man, say, 'What are you doing around here?'" before an apparent scuffle started. "I could hear it a little bit, 'Get off, get off,' then the phone just hung up," she said. (More Trayvon Martin stories.)
