What does the word "Shahid" mean?

I have learned that "Shahid" means "witness" or denotes a person who acknowledged Allah as the only one god and Muhammad as his prophet (said "Shahada"). But from other sources, which I now do not remember, I read that "Shahid" also means "learner" or "pupil" (may be "follower"). I have probably confused something, but now eager to know whether "Shahid" means "learner" or not.
