George Zimmerman Guarding A Gun Store?
Police found Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2013, sitting in his parked truck outside of Pompano Pat’s Motorcycles in Deland, Fla., according to WFTV. When the officers asked Zimmerman what he was doing there, he claimed that the store had recently been burglarized and that the owner had asked him to provide some security.
"He said he had permission from Pat Johnson to do night security, but our officers could not make contact with Pat Johnson to verify that so we did an information report," DeLand Police Sgt. Chris Estes told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
Incidentally, Pat Johnson is the man who offered to give Zimmerman a replacement handgun for the one he’d used to shoot and kill Martin in February 2012 – a Kel-Tec PF-9. Johnson subsequently received death threats for the offer.
Although Johnson has yet to weigh in on Zimmerman’s employment at Pompano Pat’s, a gun sales manager at the store claims that Zimmerman isn’t employed there. “[Zimmerman] is not an employee of the business and he is not getting paid in any way," the manager told the News-Journal
