'Are we going to shoot someone?' cops ask while pointing guns at a baby during botched Florida raid

A video has been released showing a terrified mom and her 3-month-old baby as police pointed weapons at her while raiding her home. As it turns out, however, they went to the wrong house, Vice News said Tuesday citing a Fox 13 report.

It's a similar story that resulted in the murder of medical worker Breonna Taylor as Louisville police raided the wrong apartment. However, the white woman and her baby weren't fired on with a no-knock warrant. In this case, it was the U.S. Marshals who thought they were going to arrest a Florida man for homicide.

"Tell him to come out with his hands up. We know he's in there. The place is surrounded," shouted a Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force officer.

"Are we going to shoot someone or...?" another officer said, holding a large rifle.

"Me and my newborn baby had guns pointed at us from every direction and they were at the wrong place," new mom Kada Staples said in her TikTok video showing footage from her Ring doorbell. "I'm shaking. They literally could've killed us."

The video shows at least five police approaching the apartment and ringing the bell. She didn't immediately respond because she didn't know what was happening, she told Fox 13.

"U.S. Marshals, open the door!" the officer yelled.

She shouted back that she was putting her dog in his cage but they kept screaming commands.

"Tell him to come out with his hands up, we know he's in there," said a marshal.

"But no one is in here," she replied. "Okay hold on, hold on."

"We've got contact. They have a Ring. They know we're out here," the marshal holding the rifle can be heard saying.

They then demanded that she come out of the apartment, which she does sobbing, barefooted and holding her baby

"Shamar, U.S. Marshals, come to the door with your hands up!" officers yelled.

"No! I don't know a Shamar," Staples can be heard saying as she's crying. She can be seen in the video standing next to an officer with a police battering ram to break down the door. Staples said that they were about to use it but she thinks they stopped because they knew they were on camera.

She then picked up her phone and began filming them as she told them that they got the wrong apartment. "You're right," they confessed, telling her, "you're good" and wandering off without so much as an apology.

She went on to post another video telling people that they should get cameras, regardless of the brand, because it helped her to know she shouldn't come out ready to defend herself, which could turn into a gunfight.

The ACLU published a report in 2014 saying that just 7 percent of police raids qualify for kind of SWAT actions seen in events like Taylor and Staples.

"SWAT teams were often deployed—unnecessarily and aggressively—to execute search warrants in low-level drug investigations; deployments for hostage or barricade scenarios occurred in only a small number of incidents," said the report. "The majority (79 percent) of SWAT deployments the ACLU studied were for the purpose of executing a search warrant, most commonly in drug investigations. Only a small handful of deployments (7 percent) were for hostage, barricade, or active shooter scenarios."
