FBI agents interviewed George Zimmerman's neighbors about whether he was racist and asked other residents about the legacy of racism in the city where Trayvon Martin was shot, according to documents made public Tuesday by the former neighborhood watch captain's attorney.

The FBI interviews released by Zimmerman's attorney reflect the scope of the U.S. Justice Department's civil rights investigation into Martin's shooting and how it was handled by the Sanford Police Department. The identities of those interviewed were redacted.
