Bullets are flying down here in Texas:
A 7-year-old boy was struck and killed by a stray bullet in Texas on Thursday when police opened fire on a suspect while investigating a stolen vehicle. Police said it is unclear who fired the bullet that struck the boy.
Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said they were called to a trailer park just before 11 a.m. in Schertz, Texas, a suburb of San Antonio. During the course of the investigation, police said they came across a woman in her 30s trying to break into a trailer. When confronted, police said she claimed to have a gun and threatened to shoot them.
"The suspect indicated to the deputies, 'I have a weapon, I'm going to shoot you.' At that point, she actually brandished the weapon toward the deputy," Salazar said during a Thursday evening press conference.
The suspect fled into the woods, Salazar said, where the officers gave chase. They eventually opened fire on the woman, who was struck several times and killed, while she stood on the porch of a trailer, police said.
The boy was sitting inside the trailer when he was struck in the abdomen by a stray bullet that pierced the wall. He was rushed to University Hospital where he also died, police said.

Anyone TRYING to break into a trailer must be in dire straits. Once she "fled into the woods", why did they have to shoot her?
Once again, this event proves that in the US "property" is worth more than human life (two lives in this case).
By the way, if you want to know who shot the boy, just compare the bullet to the officers' guns. Dumbasses !!!
