Two Children Armed With AK-47 In Florida Shootout (Video)

Two children aged 12 and 14 ran away from a group home in Florida. They broke into a house and engaged in a shootout with the law enforcement officers last week.

The children, a 12-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl, apparently found guns inside the house they broke into in Enterprise, Florida.

The children then fired at the sheriff's deputies, said the Volusia Country sheriff. 

The girl was shot and wounded after she pointed a shotgun at the deputies.

The boy was armed with an AK-47, put down his gun shortly after and was not injured.

The video footage released showed the deputies were hiding behind the trees as shots surrounding them. You can hear the girl's screaming in pain, and the deputies rushed to provide her medical aid.

 

She underwent surgery and was in stable condition. There were no other casualties. 

According to the report, the children had run away from Florida United Methodist Children's Home on Tuesday afternoon.

Passersby reported hearing glass breaking at the house of the children broke into and reported to the authorities,

The home contained a handgun, a shotgun and an AK-47 with a large amount of ammunition. 

The entire ideal lasted for 35 minutes of four exchanges of gunfire.

"Deputies did everything they could tonight to de-escalate, and they almost lost their lives to a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old," said Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood.

The 14-year-old girl had a record for lighting several vacant lots on fire last year.
