ORLANDO, Fla. (Reuters) – George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder charges in the 2012 shooting death of an unarmed black teenager in Florida, suffered a minor wound after being shot at in a road-rage incident on Monday, media reports said.
Zimmerman did not fire a gun in the incident, the Orlando Sentinel reported, citing a statement by police in Lake Mary, Florida, a suburb of Orlando where the incident occurred.
An attorney for Zimmerman said a bullet missed his head but he was hit by broken glass from the vehicle, according to WESH. The television station also said a bullet hole could be seen in the passenger window of Zimmerman’s vehicle.
Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said the shooting was under investigation but did not provide details.
Police said it appeared to be a “road-rage incident,” according to the FOX 35 television station in Orlando. WESH-TV in Orlando said Zimmerman’s injury was minor.
Zimmerman was released from a hospital with a facial wound, the Orlando Sentinel said.
