The trial ended with Jackson being shot in the chest, with newly released bodycam footage capturing him screeching in pain after being shot.

The two boys are charged with attempted first-degree murder of law enforcement officers and armed robbery. The man who owned the house they had entered explained that although no one was home at the time, he feared being targeted because a sheriff’s star was hanging from the window.

O’Brien appeared in juvenile court for the first time on Thursday, and a judge ordered that he appear in court on June 23.

Jackson is yet to appear in court as he remains in the hospital after undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound. Authorities have now released footage of the 30-minute standoff that only ended when the girl was shot out of the garage and pointed her gun at the officers.

Just before she was shot, the Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies were shouting over their radios that the girl was standing by a door with an AK-47 and a shotgun.

They recorded that the boy armed himself with a pistol.

Wait, he’s got the AK and the shotgun. He wraps them around the top of his neck,’ one MP is heard.

Minutes later, a deputy shouted: ‘Shooted, damn it. Fired again.’

Later, the boys appeared to have switched weapons with a proxy, stating that the girl had seized the gun, while the boy was armed with a ‘long gun’.

“He’s pointing a gun, he’s pointing a gun at the back of a trash can,” one MP shouted.

A few seconds later, aerial footage showed the girl screaming in pain as police officers opened fire with the children. The footage showed the boy surrendering immediately as he walked towards the deputies with his hands up.

Deputies repeatedly said that the girl was lying on the floor next to the trash can where she was shot.

After the boy was taken into custody, it was seen that the deputies came running to treat the injured girl.

Jackson was admitted to the Central Florida District Hospital with life-threatening injuries and underwent surgery. His condition is stable now.

Two children had fled the Florida United Methodist Nursery, where they lived before. On Thursday, home owner AJ Bedizel said he believed the children might have entered the house because there was a sheriff’s star hanging from the window, a memento from his time as Brevard County Deputy Sheriff’s Office.

Bedizel told ClickOrlando that she was on a short trip to a Publix supermarket with her two teenage daughters when their house was broken into by a burglar.

Although Bedizel said that her house was badly damaged during the conflict and she felt ‘violated’ because of what happened there, nobody was at home at the time.

Florida United Methodist Children’s Home is a group home that started out as an orphanage. Police said that they intervened in the house hundreds of times last year due to various incidents.

It is unclear why or how long the two children have been staying at home.

The whole ordeal came to light after O’Brien and Jackson were reported missing from the children’s home just before 5pm.

Lawmakers were searching the area when a neighbor reported hearing glass breaking in a house around 7:30 pm.
They contacted the landlord after seeing two people inside, but the landlord told lawmakers they were not at home and that there were multiple guns inside the property.

The girl began to open fire on the deputies surrounding the house and ordered the couple to go out. Officials say the boys fired multiple shots at MPs four times, 30 minutes apart.

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said the two boys, whom he described as ‘bad’ and likened to ‘Bonnie and Clyde’, used pistols, rifles and AK-47s to shoot deputies from various points in the house.

No deputies were injured in the incident.

“Lawyers did everything they could to de-escalate tensions tonight and they almost lost their lives to a 12- and 14-year-old boy,” Sheriff Chitwood said.

‘Without their training and supervision… Someone would have died.

‘They fired rounds—multiple, multiple bullets—until they had no choice but to return fire.’
