George Zimmerman suffered wounds to his face in a possible Florida road rage incident on Monday in which another motorist shot out the window of his truck.

Doctors released Zimmerman, 31, from Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford after he was treated for facial injuries likely caused by flying glass after a bullet his truck's window, his attorney Don West told the Orlando Sentinel.

Zimmerman flagged down a police officer on Lake Mary Boulevard after the 1 p.m. shooting. At the same time, a third party called police to report that a man named  Matthew Apperson had been involved in a shooting

WESH-TV reported there was a bullet hole in the passenger's side window of Zimmerman's vehicle.

"He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn't being helped or nothing," witness Ricardo Berrare told WESH-TV. "They actually backed up the ambulance next to his driver side so he could walk into the door. … The officer was talking to him through the back window because the other one had a hole in it. It was all shattered."

Lake Mary police told the television station that the incident may have part of a long-running dispute between Zimmerman and Apperson, who were involved in an altercation last September.

"Law enforcement will do their job," West told WESH-TV. "They'll decide what charges to file. I'm confident George will not be charged. It doesn't surprise me this fellow would say (that) George waived a gun or did something. He's in a lot of trouble. That's a very serious crime. You know, the circumstances would suggest that if he didn't want to kill him, he certainly didn't care if he did."

Zimmerman, a former Neighborhood Watch volunteer, shot and killed Trayvon Martin in 2012 but was acquitted of criminal charges in July 2013.

Since then he has had several run-ins with the law, according to the Sentinel.
