SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – A Bexar County Grand Jury has failed to indict four Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies in connection with the shooting death of a burglary suspect and a 6-year-old boy in Schertz.
Thirty-year-old Amanda Jones was running from deputies after she allegedly stole a vehicle and broke into mobile homes. She was standing on the porch of a mobile home when deputies fired their weapons, killing her. Kameron Prescott was inside his father’s residence when a bullet pierced a wall, fatally wounding him.
The deputies involved said they thought Jones was armed because she verbally threatened to shoot them, but no weapon was found.
Tuesday, a Bexar County grand jury returned a no-bill of indictment, which means the deputies will not be criminally charged in the fatal shooting.
A statement from the Bexar County District Attorney’s office says ,”After carefully reviewing and considering the evidence, the grand jury concluded that criminal charges were not appropriate against the Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies involved.”
District Attorney Joe Gonzales said ,” I respect and agree with the decision of the grand jury in this case.”
