The shooting involved Zimmerman and another man and happened on Lake Mary Boulevard about 12:45 p.m., police said.
Zimmerman flagged down an officer shortly after the incident, police said.
“At this time, the investigation has proven that George Zimmerman was not the shooter,” Lake Mary Police Department spokeswoman Bianca Gillette said.
Zimmerman was hit in the face with glass and debris and has since been released from the hospital, according to police.
“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” said witness Ricardo Berrare. "They actually backed up the ambulance next to his driver side so he could walk into the door."
Chopper 2 video showed a bullet hole in the passenger window of the vehicle Zimmerman was in.
The officer was talking to him through the back window because the other one had a hole in it. It was all shattered," Berrare said.
Lake Mary police said Zimmerman and Apperson have an ongoing dispute and were involved in an altercation in September, when Apperson accused Zimmerman of trying to kill him while on the road. Both men are waiting for legal counsel before speaking with police.
