SANFORD, Fla.– Police in Sanford, Florida, say a comment to “stop calling 911” was not directed at a woman who was later killed.
WESH originally reported, hours before Latina Herring and her son were murdered, police told her to “just stop calling 911.”
Police Chief Cecil Smith said at a press conference on Monday, they told a third-party friend of the victim who had called police multiple times, not Herring.
Police say the shooting spree that killed Herring and her son and wounded four others began with an argument over keys.
Three hours before Latina Herring was murdered she can be seen on police body camera video arguing with her boyfriend, Allen Cashe.
Cashe is accused of taking his AK-47 and killing Herring and her 8-year-old son and attempting to kill her 7-year-old son, her father, and two other bystanders.
