A 14-year-old girl who left a Florida group home was in critical but stable condition on Wednesday after she opened fire on law enforcement and was shot during the confrontation.
The girl was shot Tuesday night after she and a 12-year-old boy walked away from the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home in Enterprise, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
The juveniles made their way to a nearby home and were burglarizing it when deputies arrived and surrounded the home, authorities said. The boy and the girl fired on the deputies with weapons they found at the home, including an AK-47 assault weapon and a shotgun.
