Even though Presley’s body camera recorded the ordeal, in the darkness, and something to cover the lens of the camera is to the left of the jury, and without a clear video of the shooting and the moments leading up to it.

Cyrus said as he followed the Green car on the night of June 20, 2018, because he believed that Green was driving on a suspended license. The Dash camera video showed the Green and away from the side of the road, opened the car door and run. He then went back to the car, and short of picking up an object, and then fled again.

Tour of haunted Green, walk along a dark street, before a brief struggle, it was not to be seen in the video. The recording picked up the electrified-clicking on the sound Manager’s Taser, followed by eight of his teammates.

Presley said the other officer, who arrived on the scene in the countryside, on top of him, trying to grab his taser. “And then I was going for my gun, and he’s started to take-off. And I shot it,” Act said in the video. “I thought he was going to kill me,” he added, according to First Coast News.


An autopsy found the Green was struck by bullets eight times. He had a small quantity of alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, and tranquilizer in his system.

On the witness stand as Wednesday’s, added new details to his account. He said that he opened fire only after the Green, and then turned back to face him, and extended an arm, making the Manager believe he had a gun. The researchers found the Green and had to carry a cell phone.

Tony Green was not shot down due to the felony offenses,” said attorney Adrienne Browning, in her closing argument Thursday. “He was shot because of a bad decision, after bad decision, until the threat was overwhelming, and Zak was afraid for his life.”


“He’s made a fatal mistake, and that it was a mistake that cost a man his life,” attorney Rocky Bridges said of the Act in his closing argument. “You don’t have to like Tony Green. He went to the police, it is not a good idea. However, he was not armed. He did not come to the officer’s Manager. He did not deserve to die like this.”

The prosecutor said the Act had been 474 days after the day of the shoot-out at the beginning of the trial, and craft the story in accordance with the law. If he really thought that he grabbed a gun, and if he really thought that’s what happened here, and you’ll get on the radio and call for back-up. You don’t need to run around and chase after an individual with Taser drawn,” Bridges told the jury, according to News4Jax. “He’s had a chance to say, ‘well, I thought I saw a gun. He points the gun at me. Then he turned to me.” You don’t hear of it.”


“My son was murdered, Like his father, Wayne Anderson, told News4Jax, after the verdict was read out. “The man who killed my son to get home to his sons, … and can possibly serve up to five for the murder.

“This should serve notice to a lot of our young black males, and black males, period of time, which allows you to run up and down the field, you can perform the procedure, you can take your baseballs, you can do it,” Anderson said. “But at the end of the day, if they see you, they see a black man.”
