Traffic has slowed around Lake Mary Boulevard and Rinehart Road as police investigate what led to the shooting.Zimmerman was last seen in March in a video interview published by his lawyers, in which he said a person in his circumstances could not feel guilty over surviving a confrontation like the one he had with Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old unarmed teen he fatally shot three years ago in Sanford.The Justice Department decided in February not to prosecute Zimmerman for a hate crime, concluding there was not enough evidence to establish that Zimmerman willfully deprived Martin of his civil rights.
Zimmerman's last run-in with the law was in January, when a woman told Lake Mary police he threw a wine bottle at her during an argument. The woman later recanted her claim, and the charges against Zimmerman were dropped.
