George Zimmerman Was Not the Shooter in Road Rage Incident
George Zimmerman, the man who was acquitted by a Florida jury in the death of Trayvon Martin in 2013, was involved a road rage shooting incident around 12:45 p.m. on Monday, according to Lake Mary Police Department.
“Lake Mary police department received a 911 call from the third party on behalf of a Matthew Apperson, a white male, who stated that he had just been involved in a shooting with George Zimmerman. At this time the investigation has proven that George Zimmerman was not the shooter," Lake Mary Police Department spokeswoman Bianca Gillette said.
Zimmerman's attorney, Don West, told WKMG that a bullet missed his head and that his client was sprayed with glass from his vehicle's windshield and other debris.
He was not seriously injured and was treated and released from a local hospital. Witnesses tell WKMG that the driver of an Infiniti opened fire on Zimmerman and later turned into a retail center for help.
Aerial video from WKMG shows a SUV believed to be Zimmerman’s being towed.
“At this time, we have not determined how or why the incident and altercation began,” Gillette said.
The shooting is currently under investigation by police.
