    George Zimmerman was acquitted three years ago in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old.

    A trial is starting this week for a Florida man accused of shooting at former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in a road-rage case.

    Testimony begins Tuesday in Matthew Apperson's attempted second-degree murder trial. Authorities say he shot at Zimmerman during a traffic incident last year.

    Zimmerman told officers he had been driving in the Orlando suburb of Lake Mary when Apperson got behind his truck, yelled and fired a gun at his car a short time later, leaving a bullet hole in a window.

    A police report says Apperson had a fixation on Zimmerman.
