The New York Post: ‘Stand your ground’ law to protect Florida parking-lot shooter from prosecution

Markeis McGlockton retreats to a Clearwater, Fla., convenience store apparently after having been shot by a man whom he had shoved to the ground after an argument over a parking spot between the shooter and the victim’s girlfriend.

An argument over a handicapped parking spot at a convenience store in Florida led to a fatal shooting, and the man who pulled the trigger won’t be arrested under the state’s “stand your ground” self-defense law, authorities said.

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri told reporters during a Friday press conference that Thursday’s shooting death of Markeis McGlockton, a 28-year-old father of three, is “within the bookends of stand your ground and within the bookends of force being justified,” the Tampa Bay Times reports.
