Reports have emerged that George Zimmerman was patrolling a firearms store. Zimmerman, who was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin last July, was spotted outside a DeLand business after midnight on Sunday. He reportedly told police he was working security. According to WFTV, "Pompano Pats is a locally-owned store on South Woodland Boulevard that sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles. The report stated that the owner of the business asked Zimmerman to guard the store due to a recent burglary."

However, reports have since confirmed that Zimmerman was not, in fact, employed by the store. According to the Daytona Beach Journal, Sgt. Chris Estes initially reported the incident. “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,” Estes said. However, the store's salesman cleared thigns up: “George Zimmerman is not an employee of the business and he is not getting paid in any way, shape or form by Pompano Pat’s,” Sam Porter said.

It seems, rather, that Zimmerman was acting on his own free wil. According to ABC, Poter told reporters that “George is a really nice guy and really tries to help folks out," Porter said. "I felt he was trying to do something nice." In other news, Zimmerman has apparently filed a notice to appeal the dismissal of his defamation lawsuit against NBC Universal and three reporters. According to Fox News, "Zimmerman says NBC's editing of a story on the shooting made it sound as if Zimmerman voluntarily told an operator that Martin was black."
