Police told a Florida woman to stop calling 911 just hours before she was shot to death.
Investigators believe Latina Herring and her 8-year-old son were fatally shot and four other people wounded last week by her boyfriend, Allen Cashe, reported WESH-TV.
She had called Sanford police hours earlier during an argument early March 27 with Cashe, who told officers Herring was drunk and making false accusations.
Herring called police again about 20 minutes later, and an officer can be heard on body camera telling her not to call back.
“We’re going to handle it,” the officer says on the video recording. “Just stop calling 911 and making accusations that you don’t know about.”
One of the officers can be heard saying Herring is afraid Cashe will harm her, and he was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser, but police said there was no reason to arrest him at that point.
Police eventually left after determining the situation was a “civil matter” that did not involve any violence, and they let Cashe leave after getting his keys — which had been the subject of the argument.
Investigators said Cashe came back three hours later with an AK-47 rifle and went on a shooting rampage.
Cashe is accused of killing Herring and one son, and then attempting to kill her 7-year-old son, father and two bystanders.
All four of the victims remain hospitalized, with three in stable condition and the fourth in critical condition.
Sanford police did not respond to requests for comment about the body camera footage.
Democrats could flip the Texas state house in 2020 — and reshape the national map
Blue Texas? Democrats have long dreamt of winning Texas’s 38 electoral votes in the presidential election. That may still be a long shot, but a recent “Texodus” from Congress has given new talk to a political transformation across the Lone Star State that could have massive ramifications down the ballot and for decades to come.
Four of the state’s GOP members of Congress have announced their retirements in recent weeks, an unusual torrent of departures signaling that a storm is coming. And evidence shows that it’s not just hitting Texas’s federal delegation. It’s coming to Austin, too.
‘There’s an awful lot of really good Republicans out there’: Joe Biden at Cape Cod fundraiser
Former Vice President Joe Biden defended Republican lawmakers in DC as "decent people" during a campaign fundraiser held at Cape Cod.
"There’s an awful lot of really good Republicans out there," Biden argued, according to Washington Post reporter Matt Viser.
"I get in trouble for saying that with Democrats, but...every time we ever got in trouble with our administration, remember who got sent up to Capitol Hill to fix it? Me," he said.
”Because they know I respect the other team. I do. They’re decent people," Biden claimed. "They ran because they care about things, but they’re intimidated right now.”
Neo-Nazi ‘Atomwaffen Division’ holding live-fire militia trainings at ‘The Base’ near Spokane: report
One sign of the growing white nationalist crisis in America is a new outreach effort for paramilitary training.
"A neo-Nazi group focused on providing paramilitary-style training to far-right extremists has been conducting a massive recruitment drive and claims to have already conducted live-fire training with its members," Vice News reports.
"The Base, which is connected to extreme-right groups the Atomwaffen Division and the Feuerkrieg Division, has been promoting its growth on social media with photos announcing its presence in major cities across North America, including New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, and in Europe, South Africa, and Australia," Vice reported. "The images often include a small contingent (typically one to three) of masked, camo-clad men holding weapons standing in front of The Base's flag, a black flag with three white lines running down the centre."
