George Zimmerman was shot at but not seriously hurt Monday afternoon in what Lake Mary police called a road rage incident involving a man Zimmerman had a run-in with last year.

Police said Matthew Apperson fired at Zimmerman’s truck around 1 p.m. along Lake Mary Boulevard, near Rinehart Road.

Zimmerman was not hit by the gunfire, but was sprayed with glass as a bullet flew through his truck’s window and narrowly missed his head, according to his attorney, Don West.

Lake Mary police Officer Bianca Gillett said during a news conference shortly after 4 p.m. that Apperson called 911 to report the shooting.

Gillett added Zimmerman did not fire any shots Monday. She could not confirm whether Zimmerman had a gun on him at the time of the shooting.

“Currently the investigation is in its preliminary stages,” Gillett said. “We cannot determine whether or not charges will be filed for either party.”

Apperson is the same man who claimed Zimmerman threatened to kill him in September 2014. Apperson said Zimmerman asked him, “Do you know who I am?” during that road confrontation. No charges were filed in the September incident.
