Texas policeman faces murder charges after killing black woman in her home

Atatiana Jefferson was killed on Saturday at about 2:30 a.m. when officer Aaron Dean fired a single shot through a window into her home as she cared for her 8-year-old nephew.

Dean was responding to a call from a concerned neighbor who said Jefferson’s door was open. The officer resigned from the police department earlier on Monday. “At approximately 6:00 p.m. (23GMT) Aaron Dean was arrested for the murder of Miss Jefferson. He has since been booked into the Tarrant County Jail. ,” Chris Daniels of the the Fort Worth Police told reporters during a brief statement.

The department said interim Chief Edwin Kraus would hold a press conference on Monday to discuss the arrest. Dean was being held on $200,000 bond.

Jefferson was shot dead the same month former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was convicted of shooting and killing unarmed black man Botham Jean inside his own apartment.

Body camera video footage appears to show Dean and his partner approaching Jefferson’s home with flashlights. As Dean looks through a bedroom window, he suddenly yells, “Put your hands up, show me your hands,” then fires without identifying himself as a police officer.
