(ORLANDO SENTINEL) — George Zimmerman’s wife called 911 on Monday afternoon to report that her husband was threatening her family with a gun, but she later would not press charges.
Lake Mary police Officer Zach Hudson said Shellie Zimmerman called 911 before 3 p.m., saying George Zimmerman was threatening her and her father with a weapon in a house on Sprucewood Drive.
In the 911 call, Shellie Zimmerman tells a dispatcher that her husband had “his hand on his gun and he keeps saying step closer.”
“Step closer and what?” a dispatcher asks.
“And he’s going to shoot us,” Shellie Zimmerman replies.
However, Lake Mary police Chief Steve Bracknell confirmed about 4:30 p.m. that Shellie Zimmerman and her father, David Dean, would not press charges.
“We have no victim, no crime,” Bracknell said.
According to Hudson, George Zimmerman described his wife and her father as the aggressors.
His defense attorney Mark O’Mara said “emotions are running very, very high” between George and Shellie Zimmerman, and “nobody should be facing charges” as a result of Monday’s incident.
