Feb. 10, 2014 — Fernandina Beach

On Monday, Feb. 10, 2014, Deputy Wilfred Quick of the Nassau County Sheriff's Office shot and killed Anthony Jamal Bartley, 21, after Bartley allegedly attacked Deputy Quick.

The shooting occurred on a residential street in the North Hampton subdivision.

One caller said that a man, who was acting strangely, had tried to break into a home through a window. Bartley, described by witnesses as bloody and roaming the neighborhood, ran toward Quick with clenched fists, the report says. He then threw a punch at Quick's face. Read more

Quick dodged it but Bartley landed a blow with his left fist. Quick shot Bartley with his Taser twice before Bartley knocked it from his hand. Quick then pulled his gun and ordered Bartley to get on the ground.

Bartley responded, "You are going to have to kill me." When Bartley attacked Quick again, Quick fired.

The first volley of shots did not stop Bartley so Quick fired a second round, killing him. Autopsy results showed Bartley had been hit four or five times and had THC and cocaine metabolite in his system.

This was the 13th police shooting in Florida in 2014.

The same day, one officer shot one person in North Miami .
