A Florida man opened fire on George Zimmerman while they were driving in Lake Mary, FL.
It is reported that Zimmerman was driving in his SUV when he noticed a man was flashing his headlights behind him. When he looked, he noticed it was Matthew Apperson, who Zimmerman had allegedly threatened to kill during another incident on the road. Zimmerman fled but Apperson followed him and fired one shot into Zimmerman’s vehicle, which he later admitted.
Apperson claims that he fired the shot in self defense but Zimmerman’s lawyer, Don West, says that his client did not do anything to provoke him and did not show his weapon. The police also confirmed that Zimmerman never fired his weapon.
Zimmerman is being treated for minor injuries and Apperson has not been apprehended.
