SANFORD, FL (WFLA) -

In a darkened courtroom, photos of the dead teenager were shown on a large screen.

There was one with face-up, one with him covered with a blanket, and another of him face-down, the way Sanford Police Sgt. Anthony Raimondo said he found him when he arrived on scene.

"Mr. Martin was lying face-down, with his head oriented generally towards the north and his hands underneath his body," Raimondo said.

Raimondo said he and another officer rolled 17-year-old Trayvon Martin over and tried to do CPR.

"I breathed for Mr. Martin, I tried to sir," he told the prosecutor.

George Zimmerman is accused of second-degree murder in Martin's death. Zimmerman admits shooting Martin but is pleading not guilty and claiming self defense, saying Martin attacked him.

As photos of Martin were shown during Raimondo's testimony about that night, Martin's father Tracy Martin left the courtroom. His mother, Sybrina Fulton, remained seated as the photos were displayed.

Jurors saw other pieces of evidence on day two of the trial, including the gun used in the fatal shooting.

Prosecutors also introduced items from Martin, including his hoodie and bloodied shirt, and the can of Arizona tea, bag of Skittles and ear buds he had with him as he walked through Zimmerman's Sanford neighborhood.

Jurors also saw photos of Zimmerman taken by a crime scene technician the night of the shooting. They show marks on Zimmerman's head, which at the time had closely-cropped hair.

Zimmerman's defense claims Martin slammed his head into the pavement during a struggle.
