The Latest: Fort Worth officer resigns after fatal shooting

  The Latest: Fort Worth officer resigns after fatal shooting FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the fatal police shooting of a black woman inside a home in Fort Worth (all times local): 1:10 p.m. The Fort Worth police chief says a white officer accused in the fatal shooting of a black woman in her home has resigned. Interim Chief Ed Kraus said Monday that if the officer, Aaron Dean, had not resigned, he would have been fired. Dean shot 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson through her window in the early hours of Saturday morning. Officers were called to her home when a concerned neighbor worried for her safety noticed her door was open.Police have said the officer perceived a threat when he saw someone near the window and opened fire.

Yeboah’s off-duty firearm, a semiautomatic pistol, allegedly discharged about 5:25 a.m. and struck Afoakwah, according to the indictment. The victim’s father and cousin rushed out of their bedrooms to see Afoakwah dying on the ground. Yeboah allegedly told them there had been an “accident.”

The indictment further alleges that Yeboah claimed Afoakwah had accidentally shot himself while playing with the gun. But an investigation into the incident has caused prosecutors to question that assertion — namely an autopsy revealing the gunshot was not self-inflicted, and Yeboah’s alleged actions after his friend was shot.

Prosecutors say Yeboah did not initially try to help Afoakwah. Instead, they say he left the apartment to change his shoes and waited in the lobby of the building until first responders arrived, rather than performing first aid. The indictment alleges Yeboah did not call 911 until the victim’s father urged him to.
