School district mourns the loss of child killed in police shootout

Kameron Prescott 6 was shot and killed by sheriff's deputies Thursday in Texas

Kameron Prescott 6 was shot and killed by sheriff's deputies Thursday in Texas

Now, the family of Kameron Prescott is calling for justice, demanding that the police who killed him be held accountable for his death.

The family of a slain 6-year-old boy wants justice after the child was killed by police gunfire near San Antonio.

Kameron Prescott was shot and killed when police opened fire at the Pecan Grove mobile home park this week during the pursuit of a woman who had allegedly stolen a auto.

Gonzales said the 6-year-old wouldn't normally be at the mobile home but was visiting his father for Christmas break.

"Kameron was the kindest-hearted little boy that I have ever had the pleasure of teaching", said Prescott's teacher, Shanda Ince. "He will be missed by all of his classmates and everyone at Wiederstein".

School counselor Maria Morales remembered him as an energetic, intelligent "kind soul" who could "strike up a conversation with anyone". "He also had a great sense of humor and caring heart". His uncle, Christopher Gonzales, said he's angry and saddened by his nephew's death. It is a Constitutional right.

Gonzalez said that the main thing he wants to know is if there was a gun or a weapon.

"It is shocking really", he said. "He was just saying he didn't have a good feeling, he was telling his dad, he wanted to call his mom, he just didn't want to be there". The four officers who opened fire on Jones have reportedly been placed on temporary administrative leave, although it's not yet known which one fired the bullet that killed Prescott.

During a news conference Friday, Sheriff Javier Salazar said his office had been getting requests from the public to help with funeral expenses.
