Florida teenager Trayvon Martin died from a single gunshot wound to the chest fired from “intermediate range,” according to an autopsy report reviewed Wednesday by NBC News.

The official report, prepared by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also found that the 17-year-old Martin had one other fresh injury – a small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size – on his left ring finger below the knuckle.

Separately, a medical report on Martin’s alleged killer, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, prepared by his personal physician the day after Martin’s shooting in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, found that the Neighborhood Watch volunteer suffered a likely broken nose, swelling, two black eyes and cuts to the scalp. That report, first reported Tuesday by ABC News, also was reviewed by NBC News. Advertise | AdChoices

Both documents are part of a mountain of evidence – up to 300 pages and 67 CDs of witness statements, surveillance videos and other material-- expected to be made public soon in connection with the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman.

Zimmerman allegedly shot Martin during a confrontation inside the gated community in Sanford where Zimmerman was a neighborhood volunteer and where Martin was visiting his father’s fiancée.

After first reporting a suspicious person in the neighborhood in a phone call to Sanford police, Zimmerman followed the teenager before a fatal confrontation that remains shrouded in mystery.

Textbook case of self-defense.

But thanks for playing.

What was the weapon that Zimmerman used? Do you know?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. Kel-Tec 9 mm.

I can tell you this, it was most likely within 8-10 feet max, or Z likely would have missed.

I own a Kel-Tec 9 mm and it's not accurate at all beyond that distance.

It was published.

I have this idiosyncracy about the weapon and the report...

It is a minor detail, but a major one in my mind.

The reports said he (dead Trayvon) reached for the weapon and there wasn't a round in the chamber when the cops got there; implying he was reaching for the weapon and the fact that Trayvon 'jammed' the weapon or some such.

That is total bullshit.

Research it and see.

Z-mann cleared his weapon after he killed the kid. A normal action.

I wish I could explain it better in writing. Ask anyone about that portion of the report. I'm not a weapons expert; but this is a stickler with me.

Edit: I've just decided to ping our resident combat pistol guy, badeye, for comment.

I've not heard anything like that.

I wouldn't have cleared my weapon. At that point, I wouldn't know what to expect next. I would definitely have let it hit the ground seconds before the police pulled up though.

Really? I didn't know that.

Badeye, if you were shopping for a 1911, which ones would you choose from?

It was in the early reports but overlooked IMO.

You apparently haven't followed this story closely weeps.
