Police kill African-American woman in her home

Atatiana Jefferson Shot Inside Home By Forth Worth Police

Atatiana Jefferson was 28 years old. She worked at Xavier University of Louisiana, where she also studied biology and majored in chemistry with a minor in pre-med. She was shot inside her home when a neighbor, James Smith, made a welfare check call to police.

“Tay” was playing video games with her eight-year-old nephew in her home when she was shot. She thought she heard a noise in her backyard and was shot when she went to investigate, he said.

From Heavy.com in the USA:

James Smith, the neighbor who made the call, told WFAA that he called a non-emergency police number to ask for a welfare check. He was concerned because the lights were on and the front door was open.

Smith said the officer’s response didn’t make sense. He told WFAA that there was no domestic violence and no arguing. He said: “nothing that they should have been concerned about as far as them coming with guns drawn to my neighbor’s house.”

In their statement, the Fort Worth Police said, in part: “The individual, a black female, who resides at the residence succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased on the scene. The officer, a white male who has been with the department since April of 2018, has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome [of] the critical police incident investigation.” …

[Atatania Jefferson’s] Facebook cover photo was a photo of pretzels arranged to spell out the word “love.”
