According to local news reports, George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting this afternoon in Florida’s Seminole County, where he was shot in the face during a road rage incident.

Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell said officers at the scene reported Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound at about 12:45 pm.

“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” said witness Ricardo Berrare. “They actually backed up the ambulance next to his driver side so he could walk into the door.” Bracknell said the shooting may have been related to an “ongoing dispute” involving Zimmerman and another person.

The man who called 911 to report the shooting told CNN said that the alleged gunman ran up to him and said, “I just shot George Zimmerman, call 911!” According to CNN executive editor Ram Ramgopal, the alleged gunman claimed he was driving when Zimmerman waved a gun, prompting him to open fire.

Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in 2013. We’ll update this story as it develops.

UPDATE: Apparently Zimmerman was injured in the face after a bullet struck his car window and sprayed back at him. His injuries appear to be minor, and he’s already been released from a Sanford, FL hospital, according to the chief of the Lake Mary Police Department.

    surely his day is coming soon. He keeps dodging death but it will catch him to him sooner or later…which can’t be too soon after he murdered Trayvon Martin.

    Say, does anyone remember how Trayvon jumped George and bashed his head into the pavement–a verified fact which is not in dispute? No, of course not.

    He’s allowed because he was acquitted and deemed self defense. Everything then and everything since shows he has serious issues and is now really buying into his hype. He’ll care a gun until he dies.

    And his big bad guy, George Zimmerman did not fire back. I guess when it is not a 17 year old unarmed kid, this bastard is scared too shoot back, even in self defense.
