LAKE MARY, Florida (AP):

A lawyer for George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in 2013 of fatally shooting of an unarmed black teenager that sparked protests and national debate about race, says his client wasn't seriously injured after being involved in a shooting in Florida.

Attorney Don West says a bullet missed Zimmerman's head in today's shooting in the Orlando suburb of Lake Mary.

West says Zimmerman was sprayed with glass from his vehicle's windshield and other debris.

He says Zimmerman was released from a hospital.

Police said in a Twitter post that officers responded to a shooting involving the former neighborhood watch volunteer. The tweet provided no other details, and a spokeswoman didn't return multiple phone calls.
