George Zimmerman, the Florida man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin two years ago, was reportedly involved in a shooting in Lake Mary, Fla., Monday afternoon. Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound in the incident, according to WESH.
Video from Local 6 helicopter Sky 6 showed a pickup truck, believed to be Zimmerman’s, being towed. There’s a possible bullethole in the passenger-side window of the pickup. A sport utility vehicle is also at the scene.
“[Zimmerman] walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” a witness, Ricardo Berrare, told WESH.
