SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A friend who was on the phone with Trayvon Martin moments before he was fatally shot by George Zimmerman testified that she told the Miami teen to run after he told her he thought he was being followed.

Rachel Jeantel testified Wednesday in Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial. She is considered one of the prosecution’s most important witnesses.

Jeantel said Martin told her that he thought he had evaded the man following him. But a short time later, Martin let out a profanity on the phone.

Jeantel testified that Martin then said Zimmerman was behind him and she heard Martin ask: “What are you following me for?”

She says she heard Martin’s phone headset fall and then Martin say “Get off!”

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.
