Michael Drejka

Michael Drejka, 47, is charged with manslaughter after fatally shooting Markeis McGlockton, 28, at a convenience store parking lot. On July 19, 2018, in Clearwater, Florida, Michael Drejka fatally shot Markeis McGlockton outside a local convenience store. Shortly before the shooting, Drejka had confronted McGlockton's girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, for using a disabled parking space without a permit. McGlockton came out of the store and pushed Drejka resulting in Drejka falling to the ground. At this point, Drejka drew his firearm and shot McGlockton. McGlockton later died from his injuries at a local hospital. Drejka was not initially charged for the killing by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office as it was thought the incident came under Florida's stand-your-ground law. However, Drejka was later charged with one count of manslaughter. Drejka has pleaded not guilty to the charge.
