“Michael Drejka, who shot an unarmed black man in a Florida parking lot, has been charged with manslaughter.

The prosecutor’s decision comes despite Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri’s previous comments that he wouldn’t arrest and charge Drejka due to Florida’s controversial “stand your ground” law. Gualtieri suggested that the law shielded Drejka from charges. But it was ultimately up to prosecutors to make the final charging decision, and State Attorney Bernie McCabe announced that he was filing charges on Monday.

Drejka shot and killed Markeis McGlockton on July 19, during a dispute over a handicap space. Based on surveillance video and reports of the encounter, McGlockton and his 5-year-old son were in the Circle A Food Store in Clearwater, Florida, on July 19 when Drejka approached their car, which was parked in a handicap space. McGlockton’s partner, Britany Jacobs, was in the car with the couple’s other kids. Drejka and Jacobs began arguing over whether McGlockton and Jacobs were allowed to park there.”
