The incident stemmed from a visit by Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce last week, and her father, David Bryant Dean. They came to the house the couple used to share to pick up some of her belongings.

George Zimmerman and his wife texted Monday morning, and she told him she was going over to the house, according to a person with whom the family shared the photos of the texts.

George Zimmerman came to the house with a friend of his and got into a heated discussion with Dean, O’Mara said.

During the altercation, Zimmerman smashed his wife’s iPad.

Shellie Zimmerman called police as George Zimmerman sat in his truck with his friend.

On the 911 call, Shellie Zimmerman is breathing heavily when she tells a dispatcher that Zimmerman is still at the house.

“He’s in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun, and he’s saying, ‘Step closer.’ He’s just threatening all of us with his firearm,” she says.

Shellie Zimmerman also tells 911 that George Zimmerman punched her father in the nose, then smashed her iPad before getting in his truck.

“I don’t know what he’s capable of. I’m really, really scared,” she says.
