Police Body Cam Captures Chilling Argument Between a Woman and Her Boyfriend Just Hours Before He Murdered Her

UPPER MARLBORO, MD - JANUARY 28:   View of a Prince Georges County emergency response officer's body camera (top) as ERT"s begin wearing body cameras in Upper Marlboro, MD on January 28, 2016.   Only the Emergency Response Team (ERT) members within the corrections facility  have started wearing body cameras, one of the first facilities in Maryland to do so. As jail deaths such as those of Sandra Bland in Texas and Natasha Mckenna in Fairfax receive just as much attention as police-related fatalities, more and more jails and prisons are considering body cameras for their officers.  ERT's are separate from other corrections staff and are specially trained to respond to any and all emergencies and alarms within the jail.

Police Body Cam Captures Chilling Argument Between a Woman and Her Boyfriend Just Hours Before He Murdered Her

Latina Herring and her children fell victim to Allen Cashe's killing spree.

Published April 3, 2017

The body camera of a Sanford police officer captured the intense argument between a woman and her boyfriend just three hours before he killed her and her 8-year-old son. Latina Herring was murdered by Allen Cashe, who went on a shooting spree.

The Florida man also attempted to kill her 7-year-old son, her father and two bystanders, according to ABC 7.

  1. Cashe’s killing spree began around 6:30 a.m. on Monday morning. However, three hours prior, police were called to a Wawa where Herring and Cashe were engaged in an argument over house keys.

    About twenty minutes later, police were called to a home on Hays Drive, where the couple continued to argue. Herring seemed worried about Cashe, yet police believed it was just a "civil matter."

    At one point, Cashe is handcuffed but, without a proper reason for arrest, he is released. According to ABC 7, one officer implied that Herring should have made an accusation that he hit her.

    "I think she's calling because he's afraid he's going to do something to her," an officer says to another.

    After dealing with the situation, police left the scene and Herring was killed. Herring's friend, Ladasha Beasley, believes the Sanford police should have done more to protect her friend.

    "Sanford PD's a big disappointment to me and to others," Beasley said. "To protect and serve who, man? Who? Justice needs to be served."

    The other four shooting survivors remain in the hospital.
