George Zimmerman, the Florida man that was in 2013 acquitted in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was injured in a confrontation with a driver in Seminole County Monday afternoon.

Attorney Don West, a lawyer for Zimmerman, says his client was sprayed with glass from his vehicle's windshield after being involved in a shooting. Zimmerman's injuries were not serious and he has been released form the hospital.

ABC affiliate WFTV earlier reported that Zimmerman was shot during the confrontation. Zimmerman's truck appears to have a bullet hole in the passenger-side window, according to WFTV.

This guy seems to run into gun related activity a lot more often than I do.

What does he do for a living?

I don't know that much about him, re work and such.

I just know all good gun nuts want to grow up and be just like him.

Apparently, he "may" know who shot through his window and is of course, "helping" the investigation Wink

Too bad David isn't around to tell us what would be the best repeating firearm to employ in that kind of situation.

George Zimmerman shooting involved man in previous incident, Florida police say

George Zimmerman, acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin in 2013, was involved in a shooting Monday in Lake Mary with a man with whom he previously had a road-rage incident, police said.

Lake Mary police spokeswoman Bianca Gillete said Zimmerman and Matthew Apperson were involved in the shooting, which took place about 12:45 p.m. on Lake Mary Boulevard near Rinehart Road, east of Interstate 4. Zimmerman is not accused of firing a gun in the incident, police said.

Zimmerman and Apperson were involved in a road-rage incident in September, when Apperson claimed Zimmerman threatened to shoot and kill him, according to authorities. Apperson said that the threat was verbalized and no gun was ever displayed.

Zimmerman's attorney, Don West, said in Monday's incident, a bullet missed Zimmerman's head, but Zimmerman was sprayed with glass from his vehicle's windshield and other debris. West said Zimmerman was not seriously injured and was treated and released from a hospital.

Witnesses told Local 6 that the driver of an Infiniti opened fire on Zimmerman and later turned into a retail center on Waymont Court to get help.

Zimmerman flagged down a Lake Mary police officer to report the shooting, Gillete said. Apperson has not been arrested, and police would not release specific details of the shooting, citing an ongoing investigation.

Video from Local 6 helicopter Sky 6 showed a sport utility truck, believed to be a Honda Ridgeline belonging to Zimmerman, being towed. There's an apparent bullet hole in the passenger-side window of the truck.

A resident who lives nearby told Local 6 that he heard gunshots and then helicopters overhead.

A few weeks after being acquitted in Martin's death, Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding in northern Texas in July 2013. He apparently had a firearm in the glove compartment of a vehicle, prompting an officer to tell him, "Don't play with your firearm, OK?"

He was sent on his way with a warning.

In November 2013, police took Zimmerman into custody at his then-girlfriend's home in Apopka after an apparent fight. Zimmerman was arrested on aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of domestic violence battery and criminal mischief. The woman later asked that the charges be dropped and Zimmerman was not prosecuted.

In September 2014, police in Lake Mary said a man claimed Zimmerman threatened to kill him during a road-rage incident. Zimmerman wasn't arrested in that incident.

In January of this year, Zimmerman was arrested on another domestic violence complaint after he allegedly threw a wine bottle at a girlfriend, his lawyer Don West told reporters at the time. She later recanted and charges were never filed.

. . . prompting an officer to tell him, "Don't play with your firearm, OK?"

And be sure to wash your hands.

Why would he stay in Florida?

Because he gets away with murder here.
