George Zimmerman has been taken into custody in following an incident involving a gun, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.

The Associated Press reported that George Zimmerman's estranged wife called police Monday afternoon, saying he threatened her and her dad with a gun.

Lake Mary police say they were called to a house on Sprucewood Road in Central Florida. Lake Mary police spokesman Zach Hudson tells the station police are "trying to determine what exactly happened."

Hudson did not immediately return a call for comment from CBS News's Crimesider. The fight comes days after Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce and discussed her relationship with George Zimmerman in a TV interview.
