Hours later, however, the story had changed. Police said they found no gun on Zimmerman’s person and Shellie Zimmerman and her father, David Dean, had decided not to seek any charges against Zimmerman. Hudson said none of the witnesses in the case saw a gun either, so “as of right now, a gun is not part of the equation.”
Deputy Police Chief Colin Morgan said officers did NOT recover a gun, and Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman later dropped her claim that a gun was involved.
"Domestic violence can't be invoked because she has changed her story and says she didn't see a firearm," Bracknell said.
The dispute "was between him and his wife and her father,'' Morgan said. "There were some allegations that there had been an assault, but we could NOT confirm any of it.''
