In this photo taken Friday, Aug. 28, 2015, the Bexar County Sheriff's Department investigates the scene where deputies shot a man as they responded to a domestic disturbance call in Northwest Bexar County, Texas, near San Antonio. Gilbert Flores, 41, who was taken to a hospital, died shortly after the shooting Friday, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Monday, Aug. 31, 2015. Video obtained by KSAT-TV, that was taken by a bystander, appears to show Flores standing still with his arms raised just before two shots are heard. The deputies are on administrative leave.
