ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The Orange County Sheriff’s Office released some of the body-camera video from an hours-long standoff at an Orange County McDonald’s on May 1.

The video begins with deputies calling out to a woman inside the fast-food restaurant — later identified as Shandricka Warren, 30 — who they call Bree.

“Bree, this is the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Put the gun down, come out with both hands in the air. Do it now, please. Put the gun on the ground and walk outside with both hands up in the air and you will not be hurt,” a deputy can be heard saying off-camera through a loudspeaker.

Another deputy can be heard tracking how Warren is handling her gun inside the restaurant, which is located at 4640 S. Orange Blossom Trail.

“I think gun is in left hand. Gun’s in left hand. Gun’s back in right hand,” the deputy said in the video.

A moment later, deputies can be heard saying in the video “Shots fired” and “I’m taking a shot.”

Deputies responded to an armed robbery call from the McDonald’s at 4640 S. Orange Blossom Trl. around 10:35 p.m. Saturday and said the suspect opened fire from inside the restaurant, prompting them to return fire from outside.

There is then an exchange of gunfire.

The video released by the sheriff’s office then jumps to a screen that states “The suspect walked out of the restaurant at 4:45 a.m.”

The video then cuts to Warren walking out of the restaurant with her hands up. Deputies can be seen placing her in handcuffs shortly thereafter.

No one was hurt during the standoff.

Warren faces charges of burglary and assault with a firearm.
