Latina Herring (Facebook)

A Florida woman’s calls to 911 failed to keep her and her young son alive after Sanford, Fla.’s Police Department told her to stop calling them.

In body-camera footage released by the SPD, officers responded to a call that Latina Herring made about her boyfriend, Allen Cashe, 31, according to WCMH-TV.

Three hours before Herring was killed, she could be seen on police bodycam video arguing with Cashe.

Police were called to a Wawa store at 3:20 a.m. March 27 and then, 20 minutes later, to a nearby home. In the video, Cashe and Herring are arguing over keys, but the officers’ conversations are quite telling:

“She’s making false accusations; it’s the second time she’s done it.”

“She’s been calling all night. She first said he had a gun when he didn’t.”

“We’re going to handle it; just stop calling 911 and making accusations that you don’t know about.”

Three hours later, Herring and her 8-year-old son were dead, and her 7-year-old son, her father and two bystanders were injured. Cashe is accused of killing them with an AK-47.

Officers in the video said that they thought that Cashe may also have called because he was afraid he was going to do something to her.
