George Zimmerman involved in shooting in Lake Mary, police say
Zimmerman appeared to suffer minor wound, officers say

UPDATED 1:54 PM EDT May 11, 2015

LAKE MARY, Fla. —George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting incident in Lake Mary on Monday afternoon, according to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell.

WATCH: Live video of shooting scene

The shooting involved two men and happened on Lake Mary Boulevard, police said.

Officers at the scene said it appeared Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound, Bracknell said.

“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” said witness Ricardo Berrare.

Chopper 2 video showed a bullet hole in the passenger window the vehicle Zimmerman was in.

In January, Zimmerman was accused of assault by his girlfriend, but no charges were filed after she recanted her allegation.

He was also arrested in November 2013 on domestic violence allegations after his girlfriend called police. His girlfriend later recanted her story and charges were never filed.

Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in 2013.

This is all over the Orlando news.

NewsChannel13 is saying it was a "road rage incident".


George Zimmerman shot, injured in Lake Mary road rage incident

Last Updated: Monday, May 11, 2015, 1:59 PM

LAKE MARY --
George Zimmerman was shot in a road rage incident, Lake Mary police confirmed Monday afternoon.
The shooting happened around the 1 p.m. hour on Lake Mary Boulevard and Rinehart Road.
Zimmerman suffered minor injuries, police said.
Zimmerman was last seen in March in a video interview published by the law firm Ayo and Iken PLC, in which he said a person in his circumstances can't feel guilty over surviving a confrontation like the one he had with Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old teen he fatally shot three years ago.
The Justice Department decided in February not to prosecute Zimmerman for a hate crime, concluding there was not enough evidence to establish that Zimmerman willfully deprived Martin of his civil rights.

Zimmerman's last run-in with the law was in January, when a woman told Lake Mary police he threw a wine bottle at her during an argument. The woman later recanted her claim, and the charges against Zimmerman were dropped.

This is a developing story. Check back and refresh this article for the latest updates.

Road Rage? I wonder if he was waving a gun around before he was shot?
It's only a matter of time before he's in prison or killed. Just my opinion of course.

Agree. Seriously, what is up with him? He is constantly in the news since being acquitted. How many people do you know that are constantly being pulled over or having domestic problems? The guy is a walking timebomb!

Police recovered three guns, including one possibly used to shoot at George Zimmerman, as attorneys on Tuesday gave conflicting reports about what happened this week in the latest confrontation between Zimmerman and a Winter Springs man.

Monday's shooting, which left Zimmerman with minor facial wounds, marks the third encounter between Zimmerman — the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer best known for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin in 2012 — and Matthew Apperson in less than a year.

Apperson's Orlando-area attorney, Mark NeJame, said Zimmerman threatened Apperson with a gun Monday.

But Zimmerman's attorney, Don West, said Apperson was the aggressor and Zimmerman didn't flash a weapon.  BS

Neither attorney could provide details about why Zimmerman and Apperson continue to clash.

The first known confrontation between the two in Lake Mary happened during a road-rage incident on Lake Mary Boulevard in September.

Police are still investigating Monday's shooting and have not made any arrests or revealed details.

'He said it was George Zimmerman'

At a news conference Tuesday, Lake Mary police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said detectives searched Apperson's vehicle and found a .40-caliber Glock 22 and a .357-caliber revolver with one expended shell casing in the cylinder.

Police also have the Glock owned by Zimmerman, whose face was cut by flying glass or other debris during the shooting on Lake Mary Boulevard at 1 p.m. Monday.

Gillett said police haven't yet searched Zimmerman's vehicle. I don't believe that!

A redacted version of a 911 call was released Tuesday.

"The guy right here just said he had to shoot someone through his window, so he wants the police to come," an unidentified caller told dispatch in the 48-second 911 call. "He said it was George Zimmerman."

Gillett said the 911 call is only the first half of the call.

The rest has "pertinent information" to the ongoing investigation, so it's not being released right now.

Gillett also said detectives haven't yet interviewed Zimmerman or Apperson.

Authorities are asking any witnesses to Monday's shooting to contact police at 407-585-1323.

NeJame: It was self-defense

Zimmerman became a high-profile figure after fatally shooting Trayvon Martin in Sanford in 2012.

A Seminole County jury acquitted him in July 2013.

In previous interviews, Zimmerman has said he carries a handgun for protection because of death threats.


Zimmerman and Apperson had an apparent road-rage incident on Lake Mary Boulevard in September that resulted in no charges, but it's not known whether Monday's shooting was related to that.

Two days later, Apperson called Lake Mary police again to report that he thought Zimmerman had followed him and was watching his movements.

At the time, Zimmerman told police he had a doctor's appointment in a nearby building.

Apperson elected not to press charges in that case as well.

In Monday's shooting, Zimmerman said he was on his way to a doctor's appointment, according to his attorney.

West also said Zimmerman did not wave or shoot his gun at any time during Monday's incident. Police also confirmed that Zimmerman did not fire his weapon.

"He did have a gun in the vehicle," West said about Zimmerman. "He has a concealed-weapons permit, and he often has a gun with him, especially when he's traveling."

West said Apperson "initiated the event by following George, who was on his way to a doctor's appointment before the shooting."

NeJame, however, said Apperson was defending himself against Zimmerman.

"In light of the two previous reports Mr. Apperson filed, and in light of the various public reports concerning Mr. Zimmerman and allegations of violence, including the use of a firearm, Mr. Apperson's act of self-defense was entirely legally justified," NeJame said Tuesday.

'Near-death experience'

According to West, the bullet went through Zimmerman's closed passenger-side window, passed Zimmerman's head and lodged into the driver's-door frame above the window.

"His injuries were to his right forearm and face," West said. "I've had several conversations with him by phone. He certainly was in shock when I first talked to him. It was a near-death experience, frankly, and he was pretty stunned by the whole thing."

West said Zimmerman — who no longer lives in Central Florida — was in town for Mother's Day.

Zimmerman hasn't had contact with Apperson since last year's incident, according to West.

Apperson, records show, is a paralegal. He works at a Lake Mary company that helps people obtain disability benefits. People at the business would not comment Tuesday.

No one answered the door at the suburban Winter Springs apartment where he is thought to live. But there was a for sale sign in the yard.

On Monday, news footage captured what appeared to be a bullet hole in the passenger-side window of Zimmerman's Honda Ridgeline SUV before it was towed from the scene shortly after the incident.

The shooting took place near the entrance to Trailhead Park, which provides access to a multiuse trail and pedestrian bridge that crosses Lake Mary Boulevard.

Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012, after calling police to report the South Florida teenager as a suspicious person.

Since then, he has had several run-ins with the law.

•In September 2013, his estranged wife and her father accused Zimmerman of threatening them with a gun as the couple tried to divide up their personal belongings. He was handcuffed that day but soon released.

•He spent two days in the Seminole County jail in November 2013 after his then-girlfriend accused him of threatening her with a shotgun, pushing her out the door of their home and locking it. She later recanted.

•He was arrested again Jan. 9, accused by Lake Mary police of aggravated assault, but prosecutors backed away from filing criminal charges in that domestic-violence case after they said his accuser changed her story.
