• A 12-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl broke into a Florida home with guns Tuesday night
  • The two runaway children open fired at police officers who were initially in the area to search for them
  • The boy surrendered after police shot and wounded the girl

A shootout between law enforcement personnel and two teenagers in Volusia County, Florida, Tuesday night ended with a 14-year-old girl being shot and wounded, police said.

Deputies were searching for two runaway children from Florida United Methodist Children's Home in the community of Enterprise when they received a report of a passerby hearing glass break at a residence at approximately 7:30 p.m., the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said in a statement released Wednesday.

Authorities contacted the owner of the Osteen Road home after spotting two figures inside, and they were told there should be no one in the house, which he said had a handgun, shotgun and AK-47 assault rifle inside accompanied by a "large amount of ammunition," the statement said.

According to police, the two runaways — 12-year-old Travis O'Brien and 14-year-old Nicole Jackson — had broken into the house and armed themselves with the guns.

The children started shooting after officers surrounded the home and made announcements, with Jackson firing her first shot at a sheriff's sergeant out a back patio door at around 8:30 p.m.

Body camera footage of the shootout released by the sheriff's office Thursday showed deputies using a tree outside the home as cover, which was shot at several times by the children.

"Don't make me do this. Don't do this," an officer could be heard saying in the video as he aimed his handgun in the direction of the children.

Police shot and wounded Jackson after she came out of the garage and pointed a shotgun at deputies, the statement said. O'Brien then surrendered without firing a shot with his AK-47.

Jackson can be heard crying in the video as officers attempted to provide her with medical treatment. According to police, she was transported to Central Florida Regional Hospital (CFR) with life-threatening injuries. She was then transferred to another hospital for further treatment after surgery put her in stable condition.

O'Brien was also transported to CFR for treatment for his diabetes, but he reportedly did not receive any injuries from the incident.

Jackson and O'Brien are both facing charges of attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer and armed burglary, according to a police statement.

Police said no deputies were injured in the encounter despite a preliminary investigation indicating the two children had fired at officers on four separate occasions between the first shot and the moment Jackson was wounded.

Sheriff Mike Chitwood told reporters at a press conference on the night of the incident that this was "something I’ve never seen in 35 years in policing."

Charging affidavits obtained by CNN stated that the boy admitted to shooting repeatedly at officers using the guns they had found in the residence. He told investigators that when they saw deputies outside the home, the girl said, "I'm gonna roll this down like GTA," referring to the video game "Grand Theft Auto."

The boy "told detectives he knew they were cops when he shot them because he wanted to harm them. There are the words of a 12-year-old," Chitwood said.

According to Chitwood, the boy has no prior criminal history but had threatened to throw a brick at a school administrator and threatened to kill a student and "spread his guts all over the bleachers" earlier this year. Meanwhile, the girl had set fires in a wooded lot that came close to burning homes in April.
