George Zimmerman involved in Florida shooting


(ABC) -- LAKE MARY, Fla.: George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting in Lake Mary, Florida, police confirmed today.

Lake Mary police, near Orlando, said they responded to a report, but no additional details were immediately available.

In 2012, Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Fla., shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Florida prosecutors tried to convict Zimmerman of state-level murder and manslaughter charges, but in July 2013 a jury acquitted him, saying prosecutors didn't have enough evidence to prove their case.

Federal prosecutors also concluded there was not sufficient evidence to prove Zimmerman intentionally violated Martin's civil rights.
