Trayvon Martin killer, George Zimmerman is back in the news again, this time for threatening his wife with a gun.
ABC reports that Shellie Zimmerman called 911 shortly after 2pm today (9 September) and reported that her husband assaulted her father, Colin Morgan, and was waving a gun around and threatening her and her relatives.
Mrs Zimmerman tells a 911 dispatcher that her husband was in his car raging, adding “he continually has his hand on his gun and he says step closer…” When Shellie Zimmerman trails off the dispatcher asks “step closer and what?” to which Shellie responds, “a step closer and he’d shoot us.”
Despite telling the police dispatcher that her husband punched her father in the nose, smashed her iPad, cut it with a pocketknife and raged, “one step closer and he’d shoot us,” Shellie Zimmerman and her father have refused to give police a sworn statement. They say they do not want to press charges so the police are unable to do anything.
Mrs Zimmerman’s filed for a divorce almost a week before this incident.
In the divorce petition, she said she and her husband separated a month after he was acquitted over the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
