Bexar County boy killed in deputy-involved shooting

A 6-year-old Bexar County boy was killed just days before Christmas when sheriff’s deputies tried to take down a wanted felon.

The shooting happened on Thursday in the town of Schertz, just northeast of San Antonio.

Deputies were chasing a woman after they say she flashed a gun at them, then took off.

A manhunt led them to a mobile home park where the woman was shot while trying to break into a home.

Deputies said one of the bullets went through the wall and killed 8-year-old Kameron Prescott.

The suspect, identified as 30-year-old Amanda Jones, was a wanted felon.

Deputies later said a pipe was discovered but no weapon was found on Jones.
