Caller: Yes, he is and he's trying to shut the garage door on me.
Dispatch: Is he inside now?

Dispatch: Step closer what?
Caller: ...his firearm.  And he's gonna shoot us.
Dispatch: Okay.
Caller: He punched my dad in the nose.  My dad has a mark on his face.  I saw his glasses were on the floor.  He accosted my father and then took my iPad out of my hands and smashed it and cut it with a pocket knife.  And there's a Lake Mary city worker across the street that I believe saw almost all of it.
Dispatch: Okay.
Caller: He's sitting in his truck right now.  He just showed up here, but my phone died so I had to call you from my father's phone.
Dispatch: Okay, that's what I was wondering.  I was trying to get you back and it kept going to voicemail.
Caller: Yeah.
Dispatch: All right.
Caller: But I'm really, really afraid.
Dispatch: We have units in the area where you're at, okay, so stay on the line with me.
Caller: Okay.  I don't know what he's capable of.  I'm really, really scared.
Dispatch: All right, there are more units in the area, all right.  You said this is Shellie, right?  What's your phone number that you're calling on now?
Caller: [redacted] Oh, the police are here.  
Dispatch: Yeah, what is Zimmerman doing right now?
Caller: He's in his truck.  There's police here with their weapons drawn.
Dispatch: Does he see them?
Caller: I'm sorry?
Dispatch: Does he see them?
Caller: Um, yeah, they're telling his body guard to get out of the way.  Oh my God.  Dad, get behind the car or something.  I don't know if he's gonna start shooting at us or not.
Dispatch: Are you guys outside right now?
Caller: Yes, we are and the police have their weapons drawn.  Dad, get inside the house.  George might start shooting at us, I don't know.  We're going inside the house.
Dispatch: Okay, go back inside.
Caller: Oh my God.
Dispatch: Are you guys both inside now?
Caller: Yes.
Dispatch: Okay, stay in there okay?  Let the police take care of it.
Caller: Okay.  He's got his hands in the air.  He's not touching his weapon.
Dispatch: Okay.  Does your father need medical?
Caller: Dad, do you need medical?  He says no, but I think he does.  He does need medical.  He's shaken.  He says he feels like he's gonna have a heart attack.  His nose...  Yes, you do because your nose looks like it could be broken.  I think he should have medical, if we could have an ambulance come.
Dispatch: Sure.  They won't be able to approach until the situation outside is secure.
Caller: Okay.
Dispatch: Okay.
Caller: Oh my God.  
Dispatch: Okay.
Caller: Oh my God!
Dispatch: You guys are safe inside, correct?
Caller: Yes.
Dispatch: Shellie, you're doing really good okay.  This is a tough situation for anyone.  I'll stay on the line with you all right until our units can speak with you, all right?
Caller: Okay.
Dispatch: Are you okay?  You said he did take something out of your hand.  Do you need medical as well?
Caller: Um, I don't think so.  Maybe just shock.
Dispatch: Okay.  All right, I'm gonna go ahead and get [inaudible] respond, okay?
Caller: Okay.  Dad, get inside right now.
Dispatch: Make sure he stays inside.
Caller: Stay inside.
Dispatch: Until someone comes and lets you know it's okay for you to step out, stay inside.
Caller: Okay.
Dispatch: We're getting [inaudible] on the line to come to you, all right, but like I said they can't come up to check out your father until they secure the scene, okay?
Caller: Okay.  Um, hold on one second.
Dispatch: Okay, Shellie, take a couple deep breaths for me, all right?
Caller: Someone's in there?
Dispatch: Excuse me?
Caller: Ahhh!  There's a woman in there.  Oh my God.  Oh...
Dispatch: Shellie?
