After calling 911 and sobbing that her husband George Zimmerman had threatened her and her father with a gun, Shellie Zimmerman – the estranged wife of the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin a year-and-a-half ago – changed her story and said that she really never saw a gun on her husband, according to USA Today on Monday night. Both Mrs. Zimmerman and her father, Colin Morgan, refused to press charges after speaking with their attorney.
The Lake Mary, Florida police received the 911 call from Shellie Zimmerman, and she somewhat-hysterically stated that her husband was at her father’s house, grabbed an iPad out of her hand and destroyed it, and punched her father in the nose while threatening both of them with a gun. She is quite audibly heard on the 911 recorded-call that she made around 2 p.m. on Monday, saying that she was really scared.
Additionally, the police said they found no gun at the scene of the altercation between George Zimmerman and the two family members. While investigating the incident, the police had George Zimmerman in investigative detention – which included being hand-cuffed for a brief time. After investigating, they let him go.
