George Zimmerman just can't seem to stay away from trouble. According to Orlando news station WESH, Zimmerman was involved in a shooting incident in the town of Lake Mary. He reportedly has been treated for minor injuries. According to police, Zimmerman was able to walk to the ambulance without assistance. The cause of the shooting is still unclear. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Zimmerman was hurt in the face  — his window was broken in the altercation. Zimmerman's lawyer told the Associated Press that a bullet missed his head. The man who shot at Zimmerman is reportedly cooperating with authorities. At a press conference Monday afternoon, a police spokeswoman said that Zimmerman had not fired any weapon. According to a Washington Post report, the man who shot at Zimmerman had accused him of threatening his life in a fit of road rage in September 2014. Zimmerman was acquitted in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in July 2013. Martin's death, Zimmerman's trial, and the not-guilty verdict were crucial to the formation of the Black Lives Matter protest movement that continues today. Since Zimmerman's acquittal, he has had a surprising number of encounters with law enforcement. He has twice been accused of domestic violence, but charges were dropped in one case and never filed in the other. He was also pulled over for speeding in Texas and found to have a gun in his car. This is a breaking story and will be updated.
