George Zimmerman suffered minor injuries on Monday afternoon after being involved in a shooting in Central Florida.

According to law enforcement, Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the shooing death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2013, was shot at this afternoon along a section on Lake Mary Boulevard while in his pickup truck.

“Responding to a shooting involving George Zimmerman,” the Lake Mary Police Department tweeted.

Officials say the second man believed to be involved in the altercation is Winter Springs resident, Matthew Apperson.

Officials confirmed that Zimmerman, 31, flagged down a police officer following the shooting and that not long after, Apperson called 911 to report the incident. Ironically, Matthew is also the same man who called police last September claiming that Zimmerman threatened to kill him during another road rage incident.

The police chief has insinuated that this has been an “ongoing dispute.”

It is being reported that while in traffic, Zimmerman was waving his gun around and that is when the second party shot at the window of the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer’s car.

Zimmerman’s attorney, Don West, says that the Virginia native’s “injuries would be considered minor” and “the bullet missed his head. I think it broke a window and lodged in his vehicle.” George was not hit by any bullets.

According to police, Zimmerman did not fire any shots.

No arrests have been made and authorities are currently investigating the incident. Zimmerman has since been released from the hospital.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
