George Zimmerman Injured by Flying Glass in Shooting, Police Say

By ASHLEY SOUTHALLMAY 11, 2015

George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in 2012, was injured on Monday during a confrontation in Central Florida with a man who had previously accused him of making threats and stalking, according to local authorities.

The police said the shooting happened about 12:45 p.m. in Lake Mary, Fla., a small town near Orlando, and involved Mr. Zimmerman and Matthew Apperson, according to WESH, the local NBC affiliate.

Mr. Zimmermanís lawyer, Don West, said that his client was injured by flying glass after a motorist fired a gunshot into the passengerís side window of Mr. Zimmermanís pickup truck, according to TMZ, the celebrity gossip and entertainment website...................

Mr. Zimmerman and Mr. Apperson were involved in a road rage incident in September, when Mr. Apperson said Zimmerman threatened to shoot him, according to The Orlando Sentinel. Days later, Mr. Apperson complained that Mr. Zimmerman was stalking him, according to the report. No charges were filed in those incidents..................

Like most gunners, he's trained on what to say if he screws up. He'll say he did not wave his gun, or if he did it was because he was afraid for his life.

I have never owed a gun. I have never been in a situation I would have ever needed one. I have lived all over the country and in some not so nice places but it was never an issue. To often, Gun-owners like this idiot, end up in situation after situation, in which a gun is involved. How? At some point, it has to dawn on you "I'm doing it wrong".

46. Apperson has a concealed carry permit

and is acting within the law. He was the one who called 911 after the shooting. He has reported that he is being stalked and feels threatened. I think he is trying to protect his life and safety, because no one else can do it.

Sooner or later, someone is going to kill Zimmerman. Whether it is right or not, I think it will happen. Zimmerman should have moved away from that area, and tried to keep a low profile.

I hope the police tell both of them to avoid each other. I don't know what else can be done.

I don't think it's in him to keep a low profile, to live a "normal" life. I think there's something seriously wrong in his head.

But you're right. "Killed" is a likely outcome. Or prison. Or both.
