SCHERTZ, Texas – Wiederstein Elementary School in the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District is mourning a first-grader who was killed in a deputy-involved shooting.

Kameron Prescott was killed Thursday by what appeared to be a stray bullet at his family's home, at the Pecan Grove Mobile Home Park on FM 78.

According to Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar, four deputies fired shots outside the home when a woman who they believed was armed with a gun appeared to be reaching for the weapon.

The school district's website on Friday reported Kameron's death.

"Kameron was the kindest-hearted little boy that I have ever had the pleasure of teaching," said Shanda Ince, Kameron’s first-grade teacher. “He loved to make everyone laugh. He will be missed by all of his classmates and everyone at Wiederstein.”

School counselor Maria Morales said Kameron was "a kind soul."

“Kameron was a ball of energy, happy, smart and could strike up a conversation with anyone,” she said. “He also had a great sense of humor and caring heart. He’ll be truly missed by his classmates, teachers and the Wiederstein staff.”

"The Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District extends its deepest condolences to Kameron’s family, friends, teachers and classmates. We pause to give thanks for his life that ended all too soon, and may we find ways to honor his memory," the article read.

The district said that a fund has been established to assist Kameron’s family with expenses.
