When McGlockton emerged from the store, he pushed Drejka over. Drejka reached for his weapon and shot him in the chest, killing him.

He claims that he was acting in self-defense and that Florida’s Stand Your Ground law should protect him.

Elsewhere in the interview, he said he thought McGlockton was going to kick him.

‘As I come out I start drawing my weapon. As I start leveling off my weapon, he makes his next step towards me and 21-foot rule.

At one point in the hour-long interview, Drejka got on the ground and mimicked how he’d shot McGlockton.

 ‘It happened so fast and that was that. …I thought kicks were coming or at least he’d be on top of me.

He said that even though McGlockton was unarmed, he did not know that and that he thought his life was in danger.

Drejka said he feared he was going to ‘finish what he started’ when he pushed him over and that he was trying to preempt it.

The shooting was captured on surveillance videos outside the store. The footage shows McGlockton edging away from Drejka when he was shot.

When the detective told Drejka that instead of approaching him, he was backing away, Drejka said he ‘disagreed’.
