Woman, children accidentally pulled over by police at gunpoint

FORNEY, TX (KTRK) -- Shocking new dash cam video shows a young mother being pulled over at gun point by police in Forney, Texas, all while her four little kids were in the car. Police admit they made a mistake but are refusing to apologize.

Kametra Barbour says she was driving four children under the age of 10 home when she was suddenly stopped and surrounded by police.

    Officer: "Driver let me see your hands everybody stick their hands out the window."
    Barbour: "What is wrong?"
    Officer: "I'll tell you in a minute."

Barbour was told to exit the vehicle with her hands above her head. Police then shackled them in cuffs right in front of her children.

    Barbour: "What is wrong? My kids!"
    Officer: "How old are they?"
    Barbour: "They're six and eight and ten, nine. What are we doing?"
    Officer: "Hold on a second, okay?"
    Barbour: "What is going on? Oh my God, you will terrify my children."
    Officer: "We got a complaint of a vehicle matching your description and your license plate, waving a gun out the window."

The traffic stop was in response to a 911 caller who had told dispatch four black men were waiving a gun out the window of a beige- or tan-colored Toyota.

The problem: Barbour's car is a burgundy red Nissan Maxima.

It wasn't until Barbour's 6-year-old son, Ryan, came out of the car with his hands up too that police realized they had made a mistake.

    Officer 1: "Do they look young to you?"
    Officer 2: "They do to me."
    Officer 1: "Huh?"
    Officer 2: "They do to me."
    Officer 1: "Yep, they're young."
    Officer 1: "Gun down, gun down, gun down!"

The officers then quickly went to work trying to calm down the now terrified children.

    Officer: "Ya'll okay? Just ya'll in the car?"
    Child: "No im scared."
    Officer: "It's okay."
    Child: "No, are we going to jail?"
    Officer: "No. No one is going to jail."
    Child: (Scream, crying)
    Officer: "Hey, stop crying. It's okay. It's okay. Everything's fine now."

The police department defends the traffic stop saying the officers responded appropriately to what they believed was a dangerous situation

"For the nature of the call - that a weapon was involved - yes," said Detective Clay with the Forney Police Department told ABC affiliate WFAA.
