  • Bexar County Texas Sheriff Javier Salazar briefs reporters after a boy was accidentally killed by a stray bullet during a police shooting on Dec. 21 2017

Kameron was inside a mobile home near Nu Pecan Grove, off FM 78, when a stray bullet pierced the wall and struck him in the abdomen, according to news accounts.

The boy, who has not been officially identified, was taken to a hospital and was later pronounced dead.

Salazar said no gun was found on the suspect but investigators are looking for one.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office confirms Kameron Prescott, 6, died on Thursday afternoon.

He said it's unclear who fired the round that killed the child or what prompted the shooting, KENS reports.

The incident started on Thursday around 11 a.m. when a vehicle was reported stolen in the area of Farm to Market 1518 and Schaefer Road in northeast Bexar County.

Earlier in the day deputies had found the woman hiding in the closet of a home, where she pointed a gun at them before fleeing on foot.

Authorities said the incident began around 10:45 a.m. when a man reported that a woman he knew had stolen his auto. Her death concluded a almost 2-hour chase, that began when a man called the sheriff's office to report a stolen auto around 11 a.m., and directed deputies to where he thought the woman had taken it.

He added that the pilot of the helicopter involved in the chase reported that the woman had reached for her waistband repeatedly, suggesting she may have been armed.

It is misty on the off chance that she was associated with the auto burglary which initially conveyed police to the trailer park.

The suspect made her way into a second trailer park, and was seen by a dozen witnesses trying to enter trailers, physically threatening witnesses and causing them to believe she was armed. They inevitably started shooting at the lady, who was struck a few times and killed while she remained on the patio of a trailer, experts said. She tried to break into several homes at the trailer park before she came to the home where Kameron was inside with other relatives.
