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

A Florida man who shot another man following an altercation over a handicapped parking spot won't be facing charges due to the state's Stand Your Ground law. She said she wants justice, emphasizing that Drejka went up to her.

McGlockton, leaving his son in the store, rushes outside and directly up to Drejka, shoving him hard onto the ground.

"McGlockton approached Drejka - he didn't waste anytime getting to him - and then he pushed him", Gualtieri said, adding that there was no verbal exchange between the two men. McGlockton turned and stumbled back inside the store and was soon pronounced dead at an area hospital.

The alleged shooter, Michael Drejka, 47, approached the victim's 24-year-old girlfriend and began arguing with her after she pulled into the disabled spot at a Circle A Food Store in unincorporated Clearwater, witnesses told detectives. But Gualtieri said Drejka told deputies that he was he was in fear of being attacked again.

The man involved has a concealed weapons permit and is cooperating with police.

Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law, which was enacted in 2005, allows residents to use force, including deadly force, if they "reasonably believe" they are at risk of death or great bodily harm.

For his part, McFaul tweeted earlier that he expects the USA government to defend him and his colleagues "in public and private ". With Putin at his side, Trump said of American intelligence officials: "They said they think it's Russian Federation ".

Markeis' loved ones are heartbroken but also outraged his killer is a free-man. "And, if he feels like he can overcome that heavy burden at a Stand Your Ground hearing of proving by clear and convincing evidence that Drejka was not entitled to use force in this circumstance, then that's the state attorney's determination to make". Store owner Ali Selous says McGlockton was a frequent customer who was there buying candy for his little boy.

Jacobs told The Tampa Bay Times that her boyfriend was just defending his family. We enforce the law.

He said he had to call the police after that fight. 'And it hurts so bad'.

At this time, Drejka will not be facing any charges.

"Just because you can, doesn't mean you should", he said. "He really slammed him to the ground", Gualtieri explained. The certified nursing assistant told the newspaper she parked in the handicap spot because the parking lot was packed.

"It's a repeat. It happened to me the first time".
