George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer who gained international notoriety for shooting and killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012, spent part of his weekend signing autographs at a gun show in Florida.

Zimmerman, who has had a number of run-ins with the law in recent years, attended the New Orlando Gun Show at the Arms Room gun store in Orlando, a replacement venue after the original larger venue cancelled over his the controversial appearance.

According to the Daily News only a handful of people turned up to get an autograph during the six-hour session. Speaking to the newspaper, Zimmerman said he was there to meet his “supporters”.

One woman who attended the show told the Daily News: “It was pretty weird to meet him in person — and wow, he has gained a lot of weight!”
