CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) – Family and friends of Markeis McGlockton said their final goodbyes and will lay him to rest on Saturday.

The 28-year-old father of three was shot and killed in a Clearwater convenience store parking lot last week. Deputies say it started with an argument over a handicapped parking spot.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office investigators say McGlockton’s girlfriend, 24-year-old Britany Jacobs, pulled into a handicapped parking spot outside the Circle A Food Store on Sunset Point Road on July 19. While she was waiting for McGlockton and his 5-year-old son, who went into the store, detectives say Michael Drejka approached her and started arguing that she was in a handicapped spot.

Surveillance video shows McGlockton leave the store and push Drejka to the ground. Drejka then shot McGlockton in the chest.

Jada Pinkett Smith & Willow Talked About Her Self Harming Herself After Willow’s Hit Song …

Jada Pinkett Smith — who was accompanied by her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones — revealed she and Willow, 17, had “talked” about the moment after the teenager admitted on Red Table Talk she had been self-harming after achieving success with her 2010 single “Whip My Hair.”

“I wanted to make sure she was okay,” Jada Pinkett Smith said. “We went through what happened and in the moment I realized as a mother you also have to give your children space to deal with their own shadow.”

The Girls Trip star said she chose to pay attention to the positive things that came from Willow’s revelation.

“I focused more on how she got herself out versus what got her there,” she said. “I was most proud about that she could share it in the way she did, which let me know she had come through in a major way that she could put it on the table like that.”

“I wanted to focus on what [it was] that got her through,” the actress explained. “I really talked to her about her powering side of her journey and give her all the praise in the world for that part instead of focusing on, ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’”

The Dallas police officer who shot and killed a man Thursday evening after police said she went to the wrong apartment has been arrested on a manslaughter charge, officials confirmed Sunday.

The officer, identified as Amber Guyger, 30, is a four-year-veteran of the force. The victim has been identified as Botham Shem Jean, 26.

Guyger was booked into the Kaufman County Jail about 7:20 p.m. Sunday, according to online records. She posted a $300,000 bond and was going to be released from custody shortly, jail officials said.

Later Sunday night, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings released a statement thanking police and the Texas Rangers for a thorough investigation that led to an arrest.

“I am grateful to Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall for her leadership and foresight in calling for the Rangers to handle the investigation to ensure there was no appearance of bias,” his statement read in part.

The Rangers had taken over the investigation and obtained the manslaughter warrant from the 7th District Court in Dallas County, said Lt. Lonny Haschel, Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman.
