Florida woman, son found murdered hours after police told her stop calling 911

SANFORD, Fla. (KRON/CBS News) – A Florida woman and her 8-year-old son were found shot dead Monday after police allegedly told her to stop calling.

Florida police released body cam video of their officers responding to a domestic disturbance call just three hours before the woman and her son were found dead.


Responding officers found Latina Herring and her boyfriend, Allen Cashe, arguing over keys.

Sanford police were called twice by Herring, once to a gas station at 3:20 a.m. and 20 minutes later to a residence.

In the video, one officer can be heard saying, “She’s making false accusations. It’s the second time she’s done it.”

Police said Herring told them Cashe had a gun and he didn’t.

“We’re going to handle it. Just stop calling 911 and making accusations that you don’t know about,” said one officer in the video.

Since the couple hadn’t engaged in a physical altercation, police called it a civil matter so no arrests were made.

Hours later, Cashe allegedly shot Herring and her 8-year-old son to death with an AK-47.

Cashe is accused in the fatal shooting, in which four others were also injured, CBS affiliate stations reported. Police said Cashe went to Herring’s home with an AK-47 and shot Herring and Branden, as well as his grandfather and brother.

According to a police report, the boys were sleeping on the couch at home when they were shot three times, WKMG-TV reported. Police said Cashe must have been standing directly over them when he fired, according to WKMG-TV.

After leaving the house, Cashe then allegedly shot two innocent bystanders, including a high school student waiting for a bus. A witness at the bus stop told WKMG-TV that Cashe stopped and said, “I’m sorry, but y’all are gonna die,” before firing about 10 shots.

Sanford police didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

  1. Yep. He didn’t have a gun and she sure didn’t know what she was talking about.
    Just like I don’t know anything about derelection of duty or wrongful death lawsuits.

    What was the living situation? How did an altercation from a gas station move to a residence and no one was arrested for stalking or harassment?
    Where’d the AK come from? Not like those are easily concealable.
    Sadly it sounds like she should’ve assaulted the guy and taken the charge. At least she’d be alive if she forced the officers to do something.
