JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Nine months after gunfire killed one man and injured a second in a car near Edward Waters College, police have charged Devin Barley with murder.

The shooting happened about 11:10 p.m. on Sept. 4 at Dot Street and Grunthal streets. EWC security officers that heard the gunfire called the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. Officers found 37-year-old Anthony Whitley dead in the car that had made it a few blocks to the intersection of 4th and Grunthal streets and a blood trail leading from the passenger side of the car.

The second victim, Marcus Glover, showed up at UF Health Jacksonville and has recovered.

Barley, 21, also showed up at UF Health with a bullet wound to his hand. He was questioned by police and agreed to give a DNA sample.

Glover told police he and Whitley were in the area to buy a gun when Bartley started shooting and Whitley returned fire. All three men were hit during the exchange of gunfire.

Bartley told police he was walking nearby and hit by a stray slug.

When a bullet fragment was found to have blood from both Glover and Bartley on it, a warrant was obtained for Barley's arrest and he surrendered to police.

Whitley was the father of two who lived about 10 miles from where he was shot.

Bartley was booked into the Duval County jail on Monday and ordered held on $500,000 bond.
