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.
