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.
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.
