The FBI is investigating the fatal shooting of a man by two sheriff’s deputies in Texas after the incident was caught on cellphone video.

Two Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies shot Gilbert Flores, 41, in his front lawn while it appeared he had his hands raised in the air, My San Antonio reports. 

“We coordinate our investigation to ensure that we are not interfering with (BSCO’s) investigation,” said FBI spokeswoman Michelle Lee. “They have been extremely cooperative and transparent.”

It’s unclear whether Flores was carrying a weapon, and authorities have declined to release records on the incident.

A partnership between a sheriff’s office in Texas and Homeland Security has paid off so far, the Waco Tribune reports.

Just one week after the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office partnered with Homeland Security, officials announced the arrest of two people accused of human trafficking.

Homeland Security approached Sheriff Parnell McNamara to help crack down on human trafficking.

It was the first such partnership, the sheriff said.

“After I talked to commissioners court, we put everything in motion, and by noon we had run search warrants on this creep and found all sorts of child pornography in his house,” McNamara said of the first arrest made in connection to the partnership. “We had him thrown in jail. That’s how quick it worked.”

The FBI informant who spent four years working undercover to gather information on one of the eventual suspects in the Garland, Texas, shooting recounted his experience with ABC 15. 

“I was kind of a little nervous,” Dalba Deng, who was a paid informant working on a 2010 case involving one of the suspected shooters, said.

Deng worked undercover for four years to help the FBI build a case against Elton Simpson.

Deng said he posed as someone who wanted to learn more about Islam.

His goal was to save lives, he said.

“I did it from my heart,” he said. “I was trying to help because they were trying to kill some people.”

The undercover work provided the feds with hundreds of hours of recorded conversation with Simpson, but it ultimately wasn’t enough to convict Simpson.
