Suspect and a child killed during gun battle with BCSO deputies

Postby Frankie » Thu Dec 21, 2017 9:40 pm

I’m a scanner enthusiast and regularly monitor Schertz and Cibolo PD. Today I teleworked and listen to this unfold. It was very haunting to hear the officer calling dispatch for medical. At first I didn’t even hear the suspect was down, Officers we focused on getting help for the little boy who was caught up in someone else’s bad decisions. Today was beginning of Christmas break and he was home because today was early release to begin the holiday break.
Please, pray for the family of this little boy and the officers who will are certainly hurting as well.

Not enough details to make any intelligent comment or analysis, but the article updated at 9:37AM today I read stated:

investigators were continuing to look for the gun the woman may have been carrying. Authorities said if anyone finds it, they’re asked not to touch it, stay near it and call the Sheriff’s Office. the sheriff's dept was still searching the area for the pistol the woman was carrying.

Body-cams?...dash-cams?...Was there any connection between the fleeing woman and little boy?

Bad shoot? Just don't know enough yet.

If the suspect didn’t have gun how was there a gun battle?

Body cam and Dash cam will not be publicly available until the conclusion of the investigation.

During yesterdays press conference, Sherriff Salazar said there was no relationship between the suspect and the child.
They had a helicopter overhead following the suspect as she made several attempts to break into various trailers in order to escape. They believe this is what she was doing when they cornered her on the porch where the finial confrontation happened.
The helicopter also reported that she made several movements towards her waistband and made movements that lead them to believe she was caring a weapon.
It was reported that when officer made first contact with the suspect, she was hiding in a closet in another location. She either said or showed deputies a weapon and threatened to shoot officers. For unknown reasons, deputies backed off and she escaped the initial location and a pursuit ensued. I did hear some radio traffic that said she may have had a escape hatch in the trailer she was initially hiding in. I assume that on first contact the officers may not have gotten a visual on her and she might have bluffed a shootout in order to facilitate her escape via the secret hatch. Again, this is my assumption not a statement from BCSO.

Maybe the child they shot had a gun.

Was an unusual day for Guadalupe County. In addition to the above (which occurred in Guadalupe County altho the deputies involved in the shooting were from Bexar), there was a double slaying on that same day as well: http://seguingazette.com/news/article_6 ... 38cca.html

6-year-old boy slain in deputy-involved shooting laid to rest Thursday in San Antonio

Firefighter themed casket.


And the article also has this:

Kameron was killed on Dec. 21 as deputies opened fire on Amanda Lene Jones, a felon that they believed was armed.

Further investigation revealed that Jones did not have a gun, but was armed with a "tubular object." Some witnesses told deputies that they heard Jones claim she had a gun and would shoot them, according to Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar.


"Some witnesses told deputies they heard Jones claim" is a lot different than "deputies saw". I don't know if this is just additional info or something new.
