George Zimmerman is now a volunteer security officer for a guns and motorcycles store in Florida, according to WFTV

Wait, what?

The acquitted murderer in the Trayvon Martin case was seen inside of Pompano Pat's, a firearms, ammunition, and motorcycles store in Deland, Florida. He said that he was asked to watch the store due to a recent burglary, according to a source.

The store owner and Zimmerman's friend, Pat Johnson, said that the former neighborhood watch leader was not an employee at his store and was "not being paid" for his help.

Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in the high-profile case involving the death of Martin, 17, which brought on controversy surrounding racial profiling.

Last year, the same store offered Zimmerman a free gun after he was found not guilty in the trial.
