Guy Cleared in 'Stand Your Ground' Case Shot Dead

In a stunningly ironic turn of events, a Miami man who was freed just three months ago in a controversial "Stand Your Ground" case was killed by a stray bullet this week. Greyston Garcia—who was granted immunity by a judge in March after chasing down and killing a man who was attempting to steal his car radio—left his job at a convenience store Tuesday night to get change at a nearby gas station.

A 16-year-old boy was also killed in the shootout. (Read more Greyston Garcia stories.)
