SANFORD, Fla. >> A former neighbor of George Zimmerman testified that she heard a boy’s cry for help shortly before hearing the teen’s fatal shooting.

Jayne Surdyka testified today on the third day of testimony in Zimmerman’s murder trial for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

However, Surdyka testified that she heard multiple gunshots. Only one shot was fired in the fatal encounter.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty, claiming self-defense.

Surdyka says she was in a second-floor bedroom of her townhome when she heard scuffling outside on a rainy night in February 2012.

She says she heard an aggressive voice and a softer voice exchanging words for several minutes.

Surdyka says she then heard cries for help and believes it was a boy’s voice crying out.
