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.
