Florida's State Attorney Office released a series of previously unseen photographs on Thursday that show George Zimmerman on the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin. (See them all below.)

In one photo, Zimmerman shows his face to the camera, revealing a series of small cuts on his face. In another, he poses with his back to the camera, revealing several deeper, bloodier gashes on his head. A third photo shows the weapon Zimmerman used to kill Martin — a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun.
