The Bexar County sheriff's department is investigating the shooting by Bexar County sheriff's deputies.

A two-hour search for and chase of a woman accused of stealing a car from a man she knew ended in front of a trailer home police say she was trying to break into. Sheriff's deputies fired an undetermined number of times at her, hitting her as well as 6-year-old Kameron Prescott, who was in the home.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, while the boy died after being taken to a hospital.

"I can definitively tell you that myself and all the deputies involved, there's not a single one us of that wouldn't trade places with this child," Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar told reporters late Thursday.

The Bexar County sheriff's department is investigating the shooting by Bexar County sheriff's deputies. Salazar said yesterday he hadn't yet talked to the four deputies involved and doesn't know why they shot.

Deputies claim that the woman had earlier pointed a gun at them at least twice—nogun was found on the scene or in a subsequent search. Police say the woman, who they have not identified, swam across a creek and ran through a wooded area before arriving at the trailer park where the police shooting happened.

Salazar noted his department permits deputies to use deadly force against anyone threatening them or others (police and eyewitnesses also say the woman threatened a number of people during her flight), but did not answer questions from reporters about how that policy might apply "if a home is in the line of fire," as the San Antonio Express-News reported.

Awareness of your environment is the fourth of the "Four Rules of Gun Safety."

As HunterEd.com puts it: "If you pull the trigger, you cannot take back the bullet! Everything and everyone in front of, near, and beyond your target is your responsibility. Make sure you have an adequate backstop and never shoot at a flat, hard surface or water."

A GoFundMe was set up for Kameron's family.

I wonder if the Bexar County Sheriffs department will find any wrong doing.

If they do, undoubtedly they will punish them with a paid vacation.

What's wrong Quill??

You're not concerned their bias is going to interfere in their investigation are you??

Those deputies should clearly at least be charged with whatever the Texas equivalent to "negligent homicide" is, then let the "investigation" proceed...

Like Quill opines, however, much more likely that they will be suspended on full pay, not convicted of anything, and back at work next year as if nothing happened, free to slaughter anyone else they don't like the looks of..

Most police are out there doing their job properly and efficiently, going about their day doing nothing wrong --  but all around the world there are these pockets of crooked, incompetent, bad, lazy and/or corrupt cops, regularly getting away with murder.

From the American mid-west to outback Queensland, from gun-happy Minneapololis cowboy cops to the Brazilian "disappeared street children" of the 1980s, from London cops assassinating innocent tourists on trains to FBI agents murdering Native Americans in cold blood --  the proportion of bad cops is significant enough as to be more than "just a few bad apples"...
