CLEARWATER, Fla. -- (WBBH) -- A man who avoided charges due to Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law after shooting and killing a father at a convenience store in Clearwater will now face charges, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
The State Attorney conducted a review of the shooting and decided to charge 47-year-old Michael Drejka, the gunman, with manslaughter, deputies said. A warrant was issued for his arrest on Monday morning and not long after, Drejka was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
Before the shooting, the two men were arguing over a handicap parking spot. McGlockton's girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, had parked in a handicapped parking space, and Drejka confronted her while McGlockton was inside the store. McGlockton came outside, approached Drejka and shoved him to the ground, surveillance video shows. Drejka pulled out a handgun, and as McGlockton backed away from him, shot him in the chest.
