Boy, suspect killed during shootout with deputies in Schertz


A 7-year-old boy is dead after being hit by a stray bullet in a shootout with a car theft suspect and Bexar County Sheriff's deputies in Schertz.

Bexar County Deputies and Schertz Police were looking for the suspect when she was spotted by a law enforcement helicopter attempting  to break into a mobile home off FM 1516.

Officials say four deputies converged on the woman in a wooded area and shots were exchanged.

The woman was killed and the boy in a nearby mobile home was hit by a bullet that ripped through the wall. No word on who fired that round.

The incident prompted a lockdown at nearby Corbett Middle School.

None of the deputies was hurt.
