Police say George Zimmerman suffers gunshot wound in Florida

Posted: Updated:

George Zimmerman apparently suffered a minor gunshot wound on Monday in Florida, police said.

Chief Steve Bracknell of the Lake Mary police confirmed the account to NBC affiliate WESH. The shooting involved two men, police told the station. The station, citing its own helicopter video, said there was a bullet hole in a vehicle that Zimmerman had been in.

Zimmerman was acquitted by a Florida jury in 2013 of second-degree murder in killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

He filed a defamation suit against NBC News in 2012. A judge dismissed that claim last year, and Zimmerman has appealed.
