Body Cam Video Shows Deputies' Shootout With Kids *WARNING: GRAPHIC Video*


Dramatic body camera video from a standoff in Volusia County between two children and deputies shows the lengths deputies went to try to de-escalate the situation. Footage was released yesterday of the standoff in Enterprise between law enforcement and the two children, a 12-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl. At one point, as shots were fired at deputies, one deputy can be heard telling others to hold off and take their time to avoid having to shoot the children. Deputies can also be heard trying to talk the two into leaving the home peacefully, and Sheriff Mike Chitwood says he couldn't be prouder of the way his deputies acted. The girl remains in the hospital in critical but stable condition. The boy wasn't harmed and no deputies were hurt, either.
