Roderick Scott, acquitted of killing 17-year-old white teen Christopher Cervini. How similar was this case to the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case?

Roderick Scott, an African American man, shot and killed Christopher Cervini, 17-year-old white youth, in 2009.
Scott faced a charge of first-degree manslaughter, and claimed he shot the teen in self defense.
Scott was subsequently acquitted.
All this happened in New York State, which, even back then, had much tougher gun and self defense laws than the state of Florida has.

What are the legal similarities and differences between this case and the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case?
