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.
Kim Kardashian Savagely Claps Back At Lamar Odom Over Khloe Diss
Let’s be clear, Kim Kardashian isn’t a savage, but her clapback to Lamar Odom after he low key dissed her sister Khloe was pretty ferocious.
After Odom appeared on BET’s The Man Cave and told the hosts that he knew his marriage to Khloé was over “when she was with her second or third NBA ballplayer,” Kim got him all the way together.
“Or second or third brothel,” she shot back via Twitter.
The former NBA player reportedly frequented brothels including Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch were he infamously overdosed back in October 2015. Khloe helped nurse him back to health and even called off their divorce until he was fully recovered.
Odom told the hosts that he has nothing but love for her and wished well with her new relationship with Tristan Thompson and her pregnancy. “I’m happy for her! She took care of me,” he said. “She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
You can see the full episode of BET’s Mancave Thursday at 8/9c.
