  • Florida cops won’t charge man in shocking parking lot shooting over state’s ‘stand your ground’ law

A man in a light-colored hat - later identified as Michael Drejka, 47 - went up to the auto, and he and Jacobs got into a spat.

Markeis McGlockton, 28, shoved Michael Drejka, 47, to the ground during the argument Thursday at a Clearwater convenience store and then was shot and killed when Drejka, from a sitting position, pulled out a gun he legally owned and opened fire, shooting McGlockton once in the chest. As you can see in there, there is a pause, even if it's only for a couple seconds, there is a pause between the time Drejka hits the ground and he shoots. "Just to argue just to find someone to argue with", Selous said.

Drejka walked around his truck, looking for handicapped decals, then demanded to know why Kelly had parked there, the trucker told the Tampa Bay Times.

'He was picking a fight.

Drejka "felt after being slammed to the ground, the next thing was he was going to be further attacked by McGlockton", said Gualtieri, who has been sheriff since 2011 and also has a law degree. "I'm just sitting, waiting for my family to come back to the vehicle".

McGlockton, wounded, stumbled into the store, where he collapsed. "My dude steps back 'cause my dude is fearing for his life ― all of us were". They don't agree with the Stand Your Ground law that protects Drejka in this case and say he should face charges.

McGlockton was transported to Morton Plant Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but passed away from those injuries about 30 minutes after the shooting occurred, investigators said.

Israel Evacuates Over 400 Civilians And White Helmets From Syria
The group, which operates in opposition-held areas, is often targeted in Syrian government attacks on its members and facilities. Moreover, now that Israel has helped the evacuation, they face a new charge of being "collaborators with Israel".

Sgt. Spencer Gross of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said the shooting stemmed from an argument over a parking spot. "I enforce the law", Gualtieri said. At one point Drejka threatened to shoot Kelly.

"Everybody is panicking.my son is screaming, but it was too late", she said. Their 4-month-old and 3-year-old were in the vehicle at the time of the shooting, while their 5-year-old was inside the store.

George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, had claimed self-defense when he fatally shot Martin, a 17-year-old high school student who had been walking through the gated community.

Drejka remained on the scene until police arrived and was confirmed to have a concealed carry license. The State Attorney's Office is now investigating the matter further.

The sheriff's office on Saturday stood by the sheriff's comments during Friday's news conference, said police spokesman Spencer Gross.

"This is not right and I need justice", Jacobs said while choking back tears.
