Zimmerman’s Neighbor Says She Heard Boy’s Cry

Zimmerman's Neighbor Says She Heard Boy's Cry

A former neighbor of George Zimmerman testified Wednesday that she heard a boy’s cry for help shortly before hearing the firing of a gun.

But Jayne Surdyka also testified on the third day of testimony in Zimmerman’s murder trial that she heard multiple gunshots: “pop, pop, pop.” Only one shot was fired in the fatal encounter between Zimmerman and 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

“I truly believe the second yell for help was a yelp,” said Surdyka, who later dabbed away tears as prosecutors played her 911 call. “It was excruciating. I really felt it was a boy’s voice.”

Surdyka told the court that before the shooting, she heard an aggressive voice and a softer voice exchanging words for several minutes.

“It was someone being very aggressive and angry at someone,” she said.
