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 the moment a baby-faced “Bonnie and Clyde” opened fire on cops in Florida with an AK-47 and a gun — before the 14-year-old runaway is struck by deputies and screams out 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 teen girl is hit with return fire from the officers 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 in a stable condition on Thursday after undergoing 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.
