Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Black woman dies in Fort Worth after police officer shoots her in her home, officials say”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A police officer shot and killed a black woman in her Fort Worth, Texas, home early Saturday, authorities said.

Cops were responding about 2:25 a.m. to a call reporting the front door of the house was left open when the officer fired a shot into a window of the home, killing 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson, according to Fort Worth police.

The police released body-camera footage from the incident, in which the officer said, “Put your hands up! Show me your hands!” while approaching the window before suddenly shooting. The video, which runs just over two minutes, immediately goes dark after the single shot.

The officer, who is white and joined the force in April 2018, has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation, cops said.

“The Fort Worth Police Department shares the deep concerns of the public and is committed to completing an extremely thorough investigation,” the force said in a news release.
