SANFORD, Fla. –  Police say body cam video that appeared to show police telling a woman to “just stop calling 911” just hours before she and her son were murdered didn’t tell the whole story.

Police released 911 calls and body cam footage that show officers responding to two 911 calls early Monday morning. They 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.

Police were called to a Wawa convenience store at 3:20 a.m. Friday, then again 20 minutes later to a nearby home.

Video shows Cashe and Herring arguing over keys.

In the video, it appears police are not taking Herring’s concerns seriously:

“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.”

At one point the body cam video appears to show police tell Herring to stop calling 911.

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

Police say the couple was just arguing, and it was not physical, calling it a civil matter with no reason to arrest anyone.

Earlier today, Sanford police held a news conference, saying that the body cam video that appeared to show police telling Herring to “stop calling” was not directed at the woman, but at a third-party.

Police said the comment was directed at “a third-party complainant” who repeatedly called 911 about the incident while officers were on the scene.
