The news that Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman was apparently shot in the face has unsurprisingly been met with positive reactions. The controversial figure has been on the rampage since his 2012 acquittal and it appears he’s been pushing his luck a little too hard.
Via Orlando Sentinel:
Police have confirmed that George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting Monday afternoon on a Lake Mary road.
Zimmerman was released Monday from a hospital in Sanford with some kind of facial wound, possibly from a bullet or flying glass.
Citing a lack of evidence, the U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday announced that George Zimmerman will not face federal civil rights charges in the February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
Zimmerman is the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot and killed Trayvon Martin in 2012
He was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges.
Video Monday showed what appeared to be a bullet hole in the passenger side window of his Honda Ridgeline SUV.
Zimmerman’s vehicle was towed from the scene by a wrecker.
The shooting took place at a trailhead near Lake Mary Boulevard and Rinehart Road.
George Paschek, a resident in a neighborhood behind the shooting scene, said he was working on his lawn when he heard what sounded like two gunshots.
“I heard it and I said, ‘Boy, that sounds like gunshots,'” Paschek said.
