George Zimmerman, NRA's Greatest Hero and Biggest Victim, Once Again Makes the News
Local news reports
The attorney for a Seminole County man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman during a road rage incident on Monday said he opened fire in self-defense.
Police said the shooting stemmed from an incident on Lake Mary Boulevard and involved Matthew Apperson, of Winter Springs, a man involved in another confrontation with Zimmerman in September.
"He simply maintained that he acted in self-defense," attorney Mark NeJame said. "We see everything to suggest that that is correct."
A bullet struck Zimmerman's driver's-side window and he was hit by glass and other debris, said his attorney, Don West.
"His injuries would be considered minor," West said. "The bullet missed his head. I think it broke a window and lodged in his vehicle."
Authorities said Zimmerman did not return fire. He flagged down a local officer about the same time Apperson called 911, authorities said in a news conference on Monday.
"George absolutely denies having shown it, waved, displayed, pointed it," West said of Zimmerman's gun.
