(WFLA) Florida’s Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has released video of the interrogation of Michael Drejka after a deadly shooting in an argument over a handicapped parking space at a Clearwater convenience store.

Drejka is accused of shooting Markeis McGlockton in the argument and is claiming a “Stand Your Ground” defense.

The sheriff’s office released the video of Drejka’s initial interrogation on Wednesday.

McGlockton’s just-released autopsy shows that he died from a single bullet that entered under his left nipple and nearly exited under his right armpit–indicating he was turned away from Drejka at the time of the fatal shot, contradicting Drejka’s account of McGlockton’s actions when the shot was fired.
