ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Police say they have recovered a handgun from George Zimmerman and took two guns from a man accused of shooting at Zimmerman.

Lake Mary Police Officer Bianca Gillett said Tuesday that detectives are still investigating and no charges have been filed against Zimmerman or Matthew Apperson.

Zimmerman and Apperson were involved in a road-rage episode earlier this year, but no charges were filed in that case.

Two guns were taken from Apperson’s car, including a revolver that had a spent shell casing. Police say they will also execute a search warrant on Zimmerman’s pickup truck.

Both men had the guns legally.

Police say the shooting occurred Monday afternoon on a busy road. Zimmerman suffered minor injuries.

Zimmerman is the former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
