Shocking video shows children who opening fire on cops in Florida in the US

A 12-year-old and 14-year-old broke out of a children’s home in Florida only to open fire on police, wielding a shotgun and AK-47. Dramatic police bodycam footage shows when a baby-faced “Bonnie and Clyde” opened fire on cops in Florida with an AK-47 and a gun — before deputies stristruck 14-year-old runaway and screscreamed in pain. The newly released video shows Volusia County sheriff’s deputies outside the home where 12-year-old Travis O’Brien and 14-year-old Nicole Jackson were holed up Tuesday after breaking out of the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home, a juvenile group home KRNO-TV reported.

The pint-sized outlaws opened fire on the deputies as they approached the house following a report of a break-in. “Female has a shotgun in her hand; stand by,” a sheriff’s deputy is heard telling a dispatcher. “Put the gun down now!” he yells. A shot then rings out. “They’re shooting at me,” the deputy says. “Hold the air. I’m code 4. She’s re-racking around inside the shotgun.”

“Let’s not engage them anymore,” the dispatcher responds. “Let’s not challenge them.” “She’s racked a round in the shotgun,” the deputy shoots back. “The window is busted on the patio side. If she comes out, she’s going to have the shotgun.” Moments later, the officers hit the teen girl with return fire as she steps out of the house with the shotgun and is heard shrieking in pain.


“I think the female’s down,” a deputy says. “Call in the units. Female’s on the ground behind the car.” The footage then shows the boy surrendering and being taken into custody. The reports said that. Jackson was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and was listed as stable on Thursday after surgery. She was shot in the chest and arm. O’Brien, meanwhile, made his first court appearance on Thursday. During the virtual appearance, Judge Michael Orfinger ordered the pre-teen, represented by a public defender, to be held in secure detention for 21 days or until the next court order, WKMG-TV in Orlando reported. Or finger also ordered the boy to be arraigned on June 23.

The pair were charged with armed burglary and attempted murder of law enforcement officers, the station reported. The juveniles broke out of the children’s group home earlier on Tuesday and into the Enterprise house. The home was empty, but the youngsters found guns inside and opened fire on responding deputies — holding them at bay for more than 35 minutes. Sheriff Mike Chitwood told reporters on Tuesday that no deputies were wounded, but the officers involved were put on administrative leave.

Chitwood also called the youngsters “Bonnie and Clyde” and described them as “evil” — saying the duo callously fired at officers from several vantage points in the home, including the bedroom and garage, WKMG-TV reported. “Their conversation as they were going to kill my sergeant. They were coming out to kill cops. They were coming out to kill deputies; that’s the conversation,” Chitwood said.
