The 911 operator told him to stop following him and that authorities were on the way. Apparently Mr. Zimmerman did not listen and, well no one knows what happened next except Zimmerman, who ended up shooting the teen and killing him. He is claiming self defense.

Turns out, Mr. Zimmerman has a history of calling 911 for suspicious people in his neighborhood. A big history. The news stated he has called 911 a lot, each time claiming there was someone suspicious and appeared to be up to no good. And in almost all cases, the individual turned out to be black.

Quote from article: Prosecutors may not be able to charge Zimmerman because of changes to state law in 2005. Under the old law, people could use deadly force in self-defense only if they had tried to run away or otherwise avoid the danger.
