Authorities said Zimmerman was shot at in the latest incident but did not return fire. He flagged down a local officer about the same time Apperson called 911, authorities said in a news conference on Monday.
"I was coming back from lunch and a guy was screaming out his window, 'Please call 911. Please call 911," said witness Kenneth Cornell. "He's like, 'I shot George Zimmerman. Please call 911. I need someone to call.'"
Cornell said the man identified himself as Apperson and told him he didn't have a cellphone and that this was the third incident between him and Zimmerman.
"He said this is the third incident. They've been going back and forth for the last three months," said Cornell.
Authorities said they still don't know what led to the shooting. So far, no arrests have been made, and no charges have been filed.
Geo "Zim Man" Zimmerman shoots more NOW than I did as a cop in a Ca.
Meanwhile, conflicting versions of the incident have emerged from the two men involved.
Zimmerman attorney Don West told CNN that a driver behind Zimmerman began flashing his lights and honking his horn at him.
"The man pulled up next to George yelling obscenities at him," West said.
Zimmerman recognized Apperson as someone he had a problem with several months ago.
According to West, Zimmerman raised his window and then the man shot at him.
The bullet went through Zimmerman's side window and almost hit him in the head, West said. Zimmerman was hit by glass from the window, he said.
An employee at a nearby business, Kenneth Cornell, said he was exiting his car after lunch when a man drove up and started yelling about the shooting.
The man, who identified himself as Apperson, shouted to Cornell: "I shot George Zimmerman, call 911. I don't have a phone."
So Cornell called 911. He said Apperson shot Zimmerman after Zimmerman waved a gun.
Apperson's attorney, Mark NeJame, said his client acted in self defense.
"What happened today, he was legally justified to do," NeJame said Monday.
But West, Zimmerman's lawyer, denied that his client waved a gun. "George absolutely denies pointing a gun, displaying a gun -- no aggressive movement toward him at all," West said.
Police arrived minutes after he called 911, Cornell said. Police have not verified Cornell's account to CNN.
