A Texas police officer early Saturday morning shot and killed an African-American woman standing inside her own home, the Fort Worth Police Department said.
The department said in a statement that officers responded to a welfare call in the Hillside Morningside neighborhood around 2 a.m. and initially searched the surroundings of the woman's home. A neighbor had called dispatchers to report that the front door to her home was open.
After seeing a woman standing inside near a window, an officer fired his weapon and fatally struck her, police said.
CNN, citing the Tarrant County Medical Examiner, identified the victim as Atatiana Koquice Jefferson. Police said that Jefferson, 28, was pronounced dead on the scene.
The officer, who has been identified as a white male who's been with the Fort Worth Police since 2018, has been placed on administrative leave. He has not been named.
