FORT WORTH — Atatiana Jefferson’s family has a lot of questions. Why did a police officer shoot her in her own home? Why didn’t he identify himself as an officer ? What is his name? And maybe their biggest question of all: Will he be charged ?

At a news conference Monday afternoon, Interim Police Chief Ed Kraus identified the officer as Aaron Dean. Kraus said Dean was going to be fired Monday morning, but the officer turned in his resignation before he could do so.

Jefferson’s neighbor, James Smith, had called the department’s non-emergency number after noticing that the front door of her home had been left open since about 10 p.m. Friday.

Police said in a statement Saturday that the officer who shot her had perceived a threat and drew his weapon while checking her home. He fired once, striking her. He had been with the department since April 2018.

Atatiana’s death has eroded your own your sense of safety and trust in law enforcement. I’m truly sorry.
