Attorney: Shooter's pause could leave door open for charges

28-year-old Markeis Mc Glockton was shot and killed in a dispute over a parking spot in Clearwater Fla. Thursday. The sheriff who investigated said the shooter was justiifed un the state's

Detectives from the sheriff's office said Jacobs had parked her 2016 Chrysler 2000 in a handicapped spot without a permit, leading to the argument with Drejka that prompted a witness to alert a clerk inside. So she sent McGlockton and their 5-year-old into a Circle A in Clearwater, Fla., for snacks and drinks while she rested in the parked vehicle - or at least tried to. 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. When McGlockton walked out of the store, he approached Jacobs and Drejka. He says prosecutors could still charge the shooter but Gualtieri's comments might make that hard.

A local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is holding a vigil Sunday for a black man who was killed Thursday in what authorities are calling a "stand your ground" shooting. Investigators say Michael Drejka fatally shot Markeis McGlockton, 28, after he was shoved to the ground. The sheriff says the Stand Your Ground law handcuffs his ability to make an arrest in a case like this.

The State Attorney General could still make an arrest.

According to the former Prime Minister's private secretary Dennis Onyango, the ODM leader will be in South Africa until Friday . The theme of the lecture will be "Renewing the Mandela Legacy and Promoting Active Citizenship in a Changing World".

Jacobs parked in a handicap spot, which she said was because the parking lot was crowded (although the surveillance video shows some nearby open parking spots). McGlockton goes back inside the store where Markeis Jr.is standing.

McGlockton stumbled back into the store and collapsed, dying from the gunshot wound as his 5-year-old son looked on and as Jacobs tried to apply pressure to the wound and stop the bleeding.

"It's a wrongful death", she told the newspaper earlier Friday. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said the state would not bring charges against Drejka, as the shooting "is within the bookends of "stand your ground" and within the bookends of force being justified". Police say the argument became "heated" but did not involve any threats. So it really doesn't matter what I would have done or what anybody else would have done. he's just a citizen, and he felt he had to defend himself'. In perhaps the most famous "stand your ground" case, a jury acquitted George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager walking inside a gated community in Sanford in 2012, of second-degree murder and manslaughter.
