Early today, CNN's Anderson Cooper's page ran an interview of the eyewitness who heard a confrontation on February 26 between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. Her account below tells that Zimmerman was the aggressor.

Here is the video of the interview. As for the eyewitness, this is what CNN posted:

This eyewitness account brings us closer to understanding what really happened. We at AC360 have been trying our best to stick to what is knowable about the case, and discard what can only qualify as speculation. We have confirmed she is in fact a resident of the gated community where the shooting took place. We have confirmed she was present that night; she called 911 after witnessing a scuffle that resulted in gunfire and a dead 17-year-old boy. Her account is credible, and she has recounted her experience with police. She spoke to us last week on the air, on condition we preserve her anonymity. Tonight she came in person to our bureau for an interview, and she had a lot more to say. She spoke with Ashleigh Banfield about what she saw and heard the night of February 26. To conceal her identity, we are showing her only in shadow.
