The shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is the focus of national attention as the accused gunman's past surfaces.

Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch worker in a gated Seminole County community. Investigators say the teen was only carrying a pack of Skittles and an Arizona ice tea when he was shot.

Zimmerman said it was self defense, and since the incident occurred, he has been a free man and isn't facing any charges.  However, that could change.

Right now, the Brevard-Seminole State Attorney's Office is reviewing the case to see if charges will be filed against Zimmerman.  Also, late Monday evening, the U.S. Justice Department sent out a release stating that their organization will investigate the incident.

In the meantime, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office released six 911 calls they say George Zimmerman placed within the past seven-months.  This was all before February 26,  the night Zimmerman had the altercation with Martin.  Of the six calls, four of them were calls where Zimmerman reported suspicious black men in his neighborhood.

"We had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there's a suspicious guy," you hear Zimmerman tell the police operator in one recording.

Other phone calls alerted law enforcement to alarms or open doors.  Police say, altogether, they received 46 calls from his phone in the past 11 years.
