An entertainment news website is reporting that George Zimmerman this week visited the Florida headquarters of the gun manufacturer that made the pistol used to kill Trayvon Martin.
According to TMZ.com, Zimmerman went to Kel-Tec CNC Industries in Cocoa on Thursday to shop for a 12-gauge shotgun capable of firing 12 times before reloading.
However, Kel-Tec's website states no firearms are sold at the Cocoa plant.
TMZ released a photograph of a grinning Zimmerman shaking hands with a man wearing safety goggles and a Kel-Tec T-shirt standing inside what was described as the Kel-Tec plant.
Kel-Tec did not respond immediately to an email.
Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in July in the February 2012 killing in Sanford of 17-year-old Trayvon.
Zimmerman shot him once with a 9 mm. Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol.
Zimmerman posed for a photo with an employee of the company inside the assembly plant at Kel-Tec CNC Industries, but it's unknown whether he bought the KSG model tactical shotgun he was asking about, according to the website.
Zimmerman shot the South Florida teen to death in February 2012 in Sanford, claiming self-defense.
The jury's not-guilty verdict sparked protest and criticism of Florida's stand-your ground law.
