Officers then heard glass break and could see Michelle had a shotgun and was slamming it into a door and a wall. But when they heard 7-year-old Oscar scream, they knocked the door down. They tried to reach the back room in time, but Michelle and her son had already jumped â€“ the child being sent out first.
Police have determined it to be a failed suicide attempt on Michelleâ€™s part.
Theyâ€™ve both been taken to a hospital, where her son is in stable condition but being kept for observation, while Ms. Vailâ€™s injuries have been described as superficial.
The Department of Children and Families has been contacted to arrange custody for Oscar upon his release. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Child Protection Investigation Division is now investigating.
