SANFORD, Fla. - The jury could soon begin deliberating in the Florida trial of George Zimmerman, who's charged with the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The prosecution and defense present their closing arguments today.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara told CNN there's "overwhelming evidence" that his client acted in self-defense, but he worries about jurors returning "a compromise verdict."

Meanwhile police and city leaders in Florida say they're taking precautionary steps against any potential unrest if George Zimmerman is acquitted of second-degree murder.
