LAKE ASBURY, Fla. -- WFTV is working to find out if police will release video that may have recorded the domestic dispute that landed George Zimmerman and his estranged wife back in the spotlight.

George Zimmerman's attorney said his client never threatened his estranged wife and her father with a gun even though Shellie Zimmerman reported that in a 911 call Monday.

Attorney Mark O'Mara said the dispute between George and Shellie Zimmerman at her father's Sprucewood Road house in Lake Mary was the result of heightened emotions from their ongoing divorce.

Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman called police shortly after 2 p.m. Monday about a domestic disturbance at her parents' house.

In the 911 call obtained by Eyewitness News, Shellie Zimmerman told 911 dispatchers that her husband pulled a gun on her and her father after a verbal altercation.

"He continually has his hand on his gun and he's saying, 'Step closer,' and he's just threatening all of us with his firearm. And he's going to shoot us," Shellie Zimmerman told dispatchers.
