Michael Leon Turner

Witness Summary:

Fire Lieutenant for Station 38 – He is the supervisor. Turner has been with the department for almost 25 years. He responded with the call to Retreat View Circle. They all got out of their units and pulled out their equipment. They were notified that there was one shooting victim and one minor injury victim in a police car. The EMS personnel approached the victim laying on his back. They checked for a pulse, connected him to the heart monitor, and their medic (the highest medical authority on the scene) pronounced him dead. As soon as they pronounced him, they knew there was a crime scene, so they removed themselves. At that time, they treated Zimmerman for lacerations on the back of his head. Then, they went back in service. Trayvon Martin was never conscious on the scene. He got info on Zimmerman’s injuries from his personnel. He was within 3 or 4 feet of the body. He was supine and in a prone position, nothing that seemed out of the ordinary. He saw Zimmerman from a distance in the police car. He wasn’t close enough to see clothes or a description.
