Sheriff Responds After Deputies Not Charged in Shooting

A Bexar County Grand Jury says no charges for a pair of Bexar County Sheriffs Deputies who shot and killed a man in Late August.

“While we support the grand jury’s decision to no bill these deputies, I think it’s important to recognize that there are no winners in the situation,” Sheriff Susan Pamerleau said.

“We are going to release the (second) video and any other reports, 9-1-1 tapes and those kinds of things.” Pamerleau said that second video clearly shows Gilbert Flores had a knife in his hand before he was shot. It was unclear in a cell phone video shot from afar if a knife was present.

“The actions of Mr. Flores were the sole cause of what then happened after that, but without Mr. Flores actions, this would not have happened,” she said.

The two deputies will get back to duty soon.

The FBI has also been investigating the incident. That investigation is reportedly done, but it’s now in the hands of the U.S. Attorney.
