George Zimmerman Shot in FL



George Zimmerman has been shot, according to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell. He suffered a minor gunshot wound in a shooting incident involving two men. Zimmerman was acquitted for the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and had been accused of assault multiple times by his girlfriend. Her stories were later recanted.

A suspect who is in custody after the alleged shooting had crossed paths with Zimmerman before, The Daily Beast has learned.

The unidentified white male is currently being questioned by Lake Mary Police detectives over the alleged gunfight, authorities confirmed. The man and Zimmerman had been in a similar “road rage” incident last September, Deputy Police Chief Collin Morgan told The Daily Beast in a phone interview.

“[The suspect] was involved in another incident with George Zimmerman a while back,” said Morgan. “That was another road rage incident some time ago.”

A weapon was flashed in the previous dustup between Zimmeman and the unidentified man, Morgan said.

“A gun was displayed, but no shooting took place. No one got shot in that incident,” Deputy Chief Morgan said.

In today’s attack, which took place around 1 p.m., Zimmerman suffered a bullet wound to the face, but Dept. Chief Morgan said “it doesn’t appear to be a mortal wound.”

“It looks like he’s going to survive it,” he said. Read more at WESH Orlando.
