Deputies Will Not Face Charges in Child's Shooting Death

Several Bexar County Sheriff's Deputies have been cleared of wrongdoing in connection with the accidental shooting death of a six year old boy in a high profile incident 18 months ago, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Kameron Prescott was sitting inside his family's mobile home in Schertz on December 21, 2017, when Amanda Jones, who was fleeing deputies in connection with a car theft case, ran onto the front porch of the trailer where Kameron was sitting.

Deputies said Jones had repeatedly threatened to shoot deputies as they chased her through a wooded area and other the porch of the trailer.

Officers said when she reached the porch, she turned and pointed what Deputies thought was a gun at them, and they fired several times.

Jones was killed, and so was Kameron, who was hit by a stray bullet that smashed through the wall of the mobile home.

A Bexar County Grand Jury has now delivered a 'no bill' in the case of the deputies, which means criminal charges will not be filed and the case is concluded.

“I respect and agree with the decision of the grand jury in this case," District Attorney Joe Gonzales said.
