On the afternoon of July 19, 2018, McGlockton picked up Jacobs from her employer with their three children in the vehicle, reportedly a 2016 Chrysler 200. Jacobs took over the wheel and drove the family to the Circle A Food Store so McGlockton could buy snacks for the children. Jacobs parked the vehicle in the store’s only improperly marked handicapped parking space,[clarification needed] located on the side of the building. McGlockton went into the store with their five-year-old son, Markeis Jr.
While Jacobs was sitting inside the vehicle, Drejka pulled up in his Toyota 4-Runner, after having come from the WaWa on Missouri Ave in Largo, illegally parking perpendicular to her, blocking the handicap ramp. Drejka got out of his truck and searched for a disabled parking placard on Jacobs’ vehicle. Video surveillance shows Drejka starting a confrontation with Jacobs over the parking space. She had the other two children, aged three years and four months, seated in the car at the time. McGlockton had not yet finished checking out when he overheard the store clerk being informed of the situation.
Around 3:30 p.m., video surveillance shows McGlockton walked out of the store and walked up to Drejka and shoved him to the ground. 3 seconds later Drejka pulled out a .40-caliber Glock, which he steadied with both hands. McGlockton immediately backed up when confronted with the firearm. As McGlockton backed up to his vehicle he began to turn towards the front of the store and away from Drejka. Drejka then fired a single shot striking McGlockton in the chest. After being shot, McGlockton ran back into the store and collapsed in front of Markeis Jr. Paramedics rushed McGlockton to Morton Plant Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:04 p.m.
