An employee at a nearby business has informed CNN that the man who fired a weapon, injuring George Zimmerman, said the former neighborhood watchman was waving a gun during the dispute.
Employee Kenneth Cornell said the unidentified shooter informed him that he and Zimmerman have had previous three disputes.
The man shouted to Cornell: “I shot George Zimmerman, call 911. I don’t have a phone.”
Cornell said the man didn’t know whether Zimmerman was hurt. He called 911.
NewsOne has not verified Cornell’s claims.

A police spokesperson said it appeared that George Zimmerman was shot in a “road rage” incident, reports CNN. There were no fatalities in the incident, said police, and Zimmerman was able to “walk normally” into an ambulance, reported WESH.
Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound, police say.
The shooting involved two men and happened on Lake Mary Boulevard, police said.
This is Zimmerman’s second time in headlines this year — in January he was accused of assaulting his girlfriend. No criminal charges were filed.
After the fatal shooting of Martin, Zimmerman had numerous run-ins with the law that included a number of traffic violations and a case of alleged assault between he and ex-wife Shelley Zimmerman.
