THE moment a 12-year-old boy with an AK-47 and a 14-year-old girl were arrested after allegedly shooting at cops as the teen boasted "it's like Grand Theft Auto" was caught on camera.
Travis O'Brien and Nicole Jackson were captured on bodycam footage firing at a sergeant as he hid behind a tree.
"Standby, standby. It appears the female has a long gun pointed toward me, I have to hold my cover. Standby," Sergeant Donnie Maxwell is heard saying.
"It’s either a shotgun or a long gun the female has in her hand. The juvenile male looks like he has something in his hand as well."
Five gunshots are then heard coming from the home, which Maxwell said were coming "out the window in my direction."
Footage also includes aerial shots of the moment Jackson was shot in the chest and arm by deputies as she allegedly walked out of the garage with a shotgun in her hand that was leveled at the cops.
Helicopter footage showed deputies crouching behind a tree and returning fire at Jackson, who was behind a trash can.
"Shots fired, shots fried, LEO shots fire," a man on the radio said.
Deputies then moved in to help Jackson, who was lying behind the garbage clutching her chest, allegedly with a shotgun next to her and a pistol in her waistband. She can be heard screaming in pain.
Cops said the kids started firing at officers at 8.30pm on Tuesday night and used baseball bats to destroy furniture.
The homeowner had left the property but there was an AK-47, a shotgun, a handgun, and 200 rounds of ammunition inside, News 6 WKMG reports.
O'Brien was armed with an AK-47 and Jackson used a pump shotgun as they opened fire.
She allegedly told O'Brien "I'm gonna roll this down like GTA," referring to a very violent video game.
It was reported that the girl was "fighting for her life" in hospital, according to Fox 35.
She has since had surgery and remains in hospital in a stable condition, according to reports.
The 12-year-old, who is dependent on insulin, was confronted by cops and eventually surrendered his weapon.
Neither the boy nor any deputies were injured. He is being quizzed by law enforcement.
Sheriff Chitwood said the kids were reported missing from Florida United Methodist Children’s Home around 4.15pm.
Cops found the children in the Deltona area just over two hours later.
The sheriff said: “Every time our deputies encounter these two little ‘desperados’ they run from us.”
Sheriff Chitwood slammed the juvenile detention system.
He said: "We talk about juvenile justice reform? Deputies did everything they could to de-escalate and they almost lost their lives to a 12-year-old and 14-year-old.
"If it wasn't for their training and their supervision, somebody would've ended up dead."
