George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in 2013 of fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager that sparked protests and national debate about race, has been involved in another shooting, Florida police said.

In a Twitter post, police said their officers responded to a shooting involving the former neighbourhood watch leader. The tweet provided no other details.

Since his acquittal over the shooting of unarmed 17-tear-old Trayvon Martin, Mr Zimmerman has had several brushes with the law.

Those include two incidents involving allegations of assault by girlfriends, and his wife claiming he smashed her iPad.

Charges were either dropped or not pursued because of a lack of evidence in those cases.
