White man charged with fatally shooting Black man in Florida

Man in deadly ‘stand your ground’ shooting charged with manslaughter | TheHill

She said Drejka got out, walked to the back of Jacobs' auto, looked at the license plate, and then went to the front, apparently looking for a handicapped sticker there.

Michael Drejka shot and killed Markeis McGlockton during an argument over a handicapped parking spot at a convenience store in Clearwater, Florida; Phil Keating reports from Miami.

"It took four seconds for Mr. Drejka to make that decision, the conscious decision to murder Markeis McGlockton", Rayner said as she dramatically counted off four seconds.

The wounded McGlockton walked back into the convenience store, where he collapsed. He died at Morton Plant Hospital a half-hour later. He does not have a criminal history, but back in 2012, he was accused of pulling out a handgun during a road-rage incident.

State Attorney Bernie McCabe told the the Times his decision to charge Drejka stems from prosectors belief that they can show "clear and convincing" evidence the the "stand your ground" defense does not apply in this situation.

McGlockton's girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, who was seated in the couple's auto with two of their children, ages 3 years and 4 months, said Drejka confronted her for being parked in a handicapped-accessible space. Drejka lands on his back and McGlockton takes a step toward him. "Stand Your Ground laws are wrong and have no place in a civilized society". Seeing the confrontation, McGlockton came out of the store and pushed Drejka to the ground.

Some social activists suggested race played a role in the sheriff's decision - McGlockton is black and Drejka is white - but Gulatieri vehemently denied those accusations.

The case drew hundreds to a rally earlier this month in Clearwater. Sheriff Gulatieri later responded to Sharpton's criticisms by telling him to "go home".

The sheriff's office in Pinellas County, citing the law, which allows citizens to use deadly force when fearing "imminent death or great bodily harm", did not arrest Michael Drejka for the fatal shooting of Markeis McGlockton, a 28-year-old father of three.

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri originally said that Drejka was protecting himself. His bond has been set at $100,000.

The news release included a statement from the sheriff supporting the arrest. "This self-appointed wannabe cop attempted to hide behind "Stand Your Ground" to defend his indefensible actions, but the truth has finally cut through the noise".
