While the police interviewed a lot of people, only one guy was able to clearly explain the last few seconds of the fight:
On 2/26/2012 at approximately 2105 hours I interviewed *** ***. *** stated that while inside his residence he heard a commotion coming from the walk way [sic] behind his residence. When he investigated, he witnessed a black male, wearing a dark colored “hoodie” on top of a white or Hispanic male and throwing punches “MMA (mixed martial arts) style”. He stated he yelled out to the two individuals that he was going to call the police. He then heard a “pop”. He stated that after hearing the “pop”, he observed the person he had previously observed on top of the other person (the black male wearing the “hoodie”) laid out on the grass. Upon inquiry, *** stated he did not witness how the confrontation started between the two individuals, and that he could not positively identify either one due to the lighting conditions. *** stated he was in his living room at the onset of the commotion, and looked out of his sliding glass door, which place him approximately 30 feed directly in front from where the physical altercation between Martin and Zimmerman was taking place. *** provided a written statement, and his interview was audio recorded and submitted into evidence. ***
I have no idea what this “MMA style” punching is, but is it related to Trayvon Martin running an amateur fight club?

A commenter pointed out that in the 7-11 video posted at CNN, Martin doesn’t look like a tiny little kid. He looks much bigger than the clerk.
