The district attorney's office is joining the investigation into the deputy-involved shooting death of 6-year-old Kameron Prescott.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, Sheriff Javier Salazar has requested that the district attorney's office “provide independent investigative assistance” as the investigation continues into the deputy-involved shooting that killed 6-year-old Kameron Prescott.

BCSO says that District Attorney Nico LaHood has assigned an assistant DA and another investigator to help with the case.

The sheriff's office says that the additional investigator “will help in the review of evidence and witness statements as the case develops.”
