In July 2018, many news outlets reported the story of an unarmed Black man being shot to death over a dispute in a Clearwater, Florida parking lot. The dispute started with the victim, Markeis McGlockton, 28, trying to park his car in a handicap spot outside a food store. The murderer, Michael Drejka, 47, was known to be a "wannabe cop" who insisted on monitoring the spot despite being asked by the store to stop. When McGlockton's girlfriend didn't have the requisite handicap permit for her car, McGlockton and Drejka got in a heated argument that eventually escalated into a physical altercation. When McGlockton was leaving the store, he pushed Drejka to the ground and Drejka reacted by shooting him. McGlockton, a father of three, died shortly after.
