• Deputies: Second man arrested in deputy-involved shooting

    By: Action News Jax


    Deputies say a second person has been arrested after a police chase led to a deputy-involved shooting in Starke.

    Deontay Anqawn Risby, 21, was arrested Wednesday after the Bradford County Sheriff’s Office says he admitted to being the third person in the car.

    According to a press release, investigators learned he was “in possession of a firearm at certain points during the shooting incidents” that happened earlier Tuesday and on Monday night. 

    Risby is being charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and violation of probation stemming from previous felony arrests involving robbery and burglary. His first appearance is Thursday morning. 

    Jaylon Hankerson made his first appearance Wednesday. He is charged with fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement.

    According to the sheriff's office, he was driving a car that matched the description of a car involved in a shooting at a home on 137th Terrace Tuesday.

    Deputies said a chase ensued when deputies tried to pull the car over.

    The car came to a stop near the RJE Center on the east side of Starke.

    Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith said one of the occupants got out of the car and produced a firearm.

    Two deputies fired at the suspect. The man, identified as 20-year-old Davaughdre Rogers, later died at the hospital.

    The Bradford County Sheriff’s Office released a photo of the weapon deputies reportedly found at the scene.

    Smith said no deputies were injured in the shooting.

    The deputies involved in the shooting, an almost nine-year veteran with the agency and a deputy who had been with department for a little over a year, are on administrative leave pending an investigation into the shooting.

    Hankerson's bond was set at $75,000 and deputies said he will have to wear an ankle monitor if he bonds out of jail.
