George Zimmerman was injured in a shooting incident in Florida, according to multiple reports. Zimmerman — who was acquitted in 2013 of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin — was apparently the victim of a road rage incident involving another man.
The shooting is still under investigation, but Zimmerman's lawyer Don West confirmed his client's involvement and claimed that a man pulled up next to Zimmerman's car and shot through the driver's side window. West also said Zimmerman did not know the man who shot him. A witness said Zimmerman "walked normally into the ambulance" and that his injuries didn't look serious, and police confirmed there were no fatalities.
Police said more information would be released in a briefing Monday afternoon. This is just the latest violent incident for Zimmerman, who was arrested in a domestic violence incident in his then-girlfriend's home in 2013, reportedly threatened to kill a man in a 2014 road rage incident, and was again arrested on domestic violence charges in January of this year — all since fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012.
