7-year-old killed in the crossfire as deputies shoot felon near San Antonio Bexar County Deputy Shoots, Kills 6-year-old Schertz Boy While Chasing Felon

Deputies went to Kameron's home in Schertz on Thursday and opened fire on a woman they believed was breaking into the residence and pointing a weapon at them, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The child was taken to University Hospital in critical condition.

Salazar says no gun was later found on her, and that it wasn't clear what prompted the deputies to shoot.

Kameron Prescott was on his first day of Christmas break when he was pierced by a bullet in his torso while inside of his home Thursday afternoon.

None of the deputies was injured, and neither were two other people in the mobile home.

The female suspect was shot multiple times and died at the scene. She allegedly pointed a firearm at deputies who pursued her before the shooting. The sheriff said they're still trying to determine who fired the shot that killed the boy.

The incident started on Thursday around 11 a.m. when a auto was reported stolen in the area of Farm to Market 1518 and Schaefer Road in northeast Bexar County.

The woman, a wanted felon and a suspect in a auto theft, had been trying to break into a mobile home on Thursday when deputies caught up to her on the front porch after a several hours manhunt, and opened fire.

Valerie Mills, who lives in the mobile home park, said she was walking near her home when she saw the woman.

After leading officers on a 90-minute chase through woodland, she was tracked to the trailer park, which is now a live crime scene. When she took off running, the deputy chased after her and during that time she pointed her weapon at the deputy, Salazar explained.

He added that the pilot of the helicopter involved in the chase reported that the woman had reached for her waistband repeatedly, suggesting she may have been armed.

Earlier in the day, a man had notified the police that a woman had stolen his vehicle and that he knew her whereabouts.

The child's death hits to home for Martinez because she has a grandson the same age as Kameron.
