San Antonio, Texas - On Monday, KSAT 12 ABC News posted the full unedited video showing two Bexar County Sheriff Deputies Greg Vasquez and Robert Sanchez fatally shot unarmed Gilbert Flores, 41, in cold blood while he held his hands up. In the video it shows Flores running around shirtless, puts his hands up and then multiple shots are fired by the deputies killing him. 
The Bexar County Sheriff's Office criticized KSAT for posting the full video and paying $100 for it, but it seems the video shows that a homicide was committed by two of the department deputies. The Bexar County District Attorney's Office claims that they received a second closeup video that clearly shows what happened at the scene and wouldn't give any details.
Deputies were called to the home at 24400 block of Walnut Pass to respond to a domestic violence call.
Both deputies were placed on paid administrative duty pending the outcome of the investigation.
