Texas officials are investigating after newly released body camera footage obtained by the non-profit news outlet Reveal showed a deputy Tasing a migrant teenage boy at a shelter.

(CNN)Texas officials are investigating after newly released body camera footage obtained by the non-profit news outlet Reveal showed a deputy Tasing a migrant teenage boy at a shelter.

The footage, which the outlet said it obtained under a Texas state records law from the Bexar County Sheriff's Office, showed a deputy responding to a shelter in San Antonio run by federal government contractor Southwest Key and deploying a Taser on a 16-year-old boy who had reportedly become angry and aggressive.

In a statement to CNN, the sheriff's office said deputies responded to the facility on May 12, 2020, after a caller reported a juvenile had become "angry and uncooperative" and "damaged several bed posts and destroyed storage containers. "

When deputies arrived at the shelter, they made contact with the caller and "gave the juvenile verbal commands and when the juvenile was non-compliant, the responding deputy Tased the juvenile and then detained him," the sheriff's office said.

The sheriff's office said it would not provide a copy of the footage to CNN, "because the video contains a juvenile, in addition to this incident being under administrative investigation. "
