Michael Drejka trial | Thursday marks the second day of testimony in the trial of the shooter who killed an unarmed man during a 2018 argument over a handicap parking spot outside a Clearwater convenience store.
Michael Drejka, 49, is charged with manslaughter in the death of Markeis McGlockton.
Prosecutors say Drejka picked an argument with McGlockton’s girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, about the couple being parked in the reserved space while McGlockton and his 5-year-old son ran into the Circle A Food Store on Sunset Point Road in Clearwater. When McGlockton walked back outside and saw the ongoing confrontation, he shoved Drejka to the ground. Seconds later, Drejka shot McGlockton once in the chest. McGlockton collapsed in front of his family and died.
