Pompano Pat's motorcycle and gun store denies hiring George Zimmerman as security guard

DELAND, Fla. - ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The manager of a Florida business where George Zimmerman was questioned by police says that Zimmerman was never hired to provide security, despite his claims otherwise to authorities.

DeLand police report that two officers approached Zimmerman after midnight Sunday when he and his dog were spotted parked behind Pompano Pat's motorcycle and gun store.

 Zimmerman told officers the owner had given him permission to be there and asked him to provide security after a recent burglary. Officers attempted to confirm but were unable to reach the owner. No citations were issued.

Pompano Pat's manager Sam Porter said Tuesday that Zimmerman "in no way, shape or form" has been employed by the store.

 Zimmerman was acquitted last summer in the shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin.
