Witnesses told deputies the two were arguing because Drejka was upset the woman parked there because she didn't use a wheelchair, sources said.

On Feb. 26, 2012, Zimmerman called the police on Martin, who was walking through his neighborhood, because he suspected Martin may have been connected to a string of local burglaries. Drejka will not be charged [and] will not be arrested by us. "I enforce the law", Gualtieri said.

Jacobs, who witnessed the shooting along with the couple's 5-year-old son, said she and her two small children were waiting in the vehicle for her boyfriend, Markeis McGlockton, while he ran into a convenience store in Clearwater, Florida.

Drejka reportedly approached McGlockton's girlfriend Britany Jacobs, 24, in the auto while McGlockton was in a supermarket with their son. The second was to the U.S. Concealed Carry Association, which at the time offered low-priced legal counsel for members who found themselves in Julians predicament. "They [ask], 'Can we prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt?' and if you have the sheriff standing up in front of a podium saying, 'We don't have probable cause to even believe he should be arrested, ' it's going to be hard for the State Attorney's Office to turn around and say, 'Well, we think he should be prosecuted, '" Rickman explained. Markeis McGlockton, a father to three young children, was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

Within seconds of pulling the gun, Drejka fired a shot directly into McGlockton's chest. Jacobs told the Times. The 28-year-old stumbled back into the store and collapsed in front of his son. The couple's four-month-old son and three-year-old daughter were inside the auto during the shooting.

Drejka remained on the scene until police arrived and was confirmed to have a concealed carry license.
