George Zimmerman — who was acquitted in the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, of Sanford, Florida — is making headlines once again.
Though this time, Zimmerman appears to be the one who has sustained a gunshot wound.
George Zimmerman was injured in a shooting in Lake Mary on Monday afternoon, according to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell.
The shooting involved Zimmerman and another man and happened on Lake Mary Boulevard about 12:45 p.m., police said.
According to Bracknell, officers at the scene reported Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound.
“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” said witness Ricardo Berrare. “They actually backed up the ambulance next to his driver side so he could walk into the door.”
Chopper 2 video showed a bullet hole in the passenger window the vehicle Zimmerman was in.
“The officer was talking to him through the back window because the other one had a hole in it. It was all shattered,” Berrare said.
Bracknell said the shooting may have been related to an “ongoing dispute” involving Zimmerman and another person.
In January, Zimmerman was accused of assault by his girlfriend, but no charges were filed after she recanted her allegation.
He was also arrested in November 2013 on domestic violence allegations after his girlfriend called police. His girlfriend later recanted her story and charges were never filed.
Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in 2013.
