Two armed children engaged in violent AK-47 shootout with Florida police
A 12-year-old boy with an AK-47 and a 14-year-old girl were arrested after allegedly shooting at cops while boasting “it’s like Grand Theft Auto.” Florida authorities said two armed children engaged in a violent shootout with law enforcement in the town of Enterprise on Wednesday. Travis O’Brien and Nicole Jackson were captured on bodycam footage firing at a sergeant as he hid behind a tree. “Standby, standby. It appears the female has a long gun pointed toward me, I have to hold my cover. Standby,” Sergeant Donnie Maxwell is heard saying. “It’s either a shotgun or a long gun the female has in her hand.
The juvenile male looks like he has something in his hand as well.” Five gunshots are then heard coming from the home, which Maxwell said were coming “out the window in my direction.” Footage also includes aerial shots of the moment Jackson was shot in the chest and arm by deputies as she allegedly walked out of the garage with a shotgun in her hand that was levelled at by the cops. Helicopter footage showed deputies crouching behind a tree and returning fire at Jackson, who was behind a trash can. “Shots fired, shots fried, LEO shots fire,” a man on the radio said.
Deputies then moved in to help Jackson, who was lying behind the garbage clutching her chest, allegedly with a shotgun next to her and a pistol in her waistband. She can be heard screaming in pain. Cops said the kids started firing at officers at 8.30pm on Tuesday night and used baseball bats to destroy furniture.
The homeowner had left the property but there was an AK-47, a shotgun, a handgun, and 200 rounds of ammunition inside, News 6 WKMG reports. O’Brien was armed with an AK-47 and Jackson used a pump shotgun as they opened fire.
