Numerous updates: A shooting took place in Lake Mary Florida involving George Zimmerman, while George was there visiting family. The Shooter Identified As Same Whacko From 2014, Matthew Apperson:
4:30pm – “Lake Mary police spokeswoman Bianca Gillete said Zimmerman and Matthew Apperson were involved in the shooting, which took place about 12:45 p.m. on Lake Mary Boulevard near Rinehart Road, east of Interstate 4″… (link).
Matt Apperson is the same guy who tried to gain fame in September of 2014 by claiming that George Zimmerman waved a gun at him during a road rage incident. (Full backstory of their prior two encounters outlined HERE)
EXERPT FROM SEPTEMBER 2014 – Apperson told a 911 dispatcher Tuesday morning that he was driving his Honda Accord on Lake Mary Boulevard, made a U-turn and headed west-bound when a Honda Ridgeline truck pulled alongside and someone inside rolled down his window.
“George Zimmerman was the driver, and they were threatening to kick my ___ and to shoot me,” Apperson told the dispatcher.
Apperson said he pulled into a Circle K to find a phone so he could call for help when the Ridgeline made a maneuver to block him and “almost hit my car.”
Zimmerman “said he was going to shoot me dead,” Apperson told the dispatcher (more)
It would appear that Matthew Apperson is a psycho-stalker trying to gain fame by circling around George Zimmerman, and provoking contact.
