Black lady murdered by a police officer in Texas

In the city of Fort Worth, Texas, a black lady is murdered in her bedroom, by a police official. The police detectives had been summoned to the place by a neighbor who was upset about the woman and the family’s security as the gate was open and lights were on late at that time of the night, as the neighbor James Smith had described to the media.

It was about 2 a.m., Saturday on October 12 that Atatian Koquice Jefferson’s neighbor James Smith, after seeing her home entrance open and lights on, called on a non-emergency helpline number to check on his neighbor’s house to assure that the family was alright. Right after 25 minutes the officers got there at the place and parked near to the woman’s house. As the door was open they started examining the boundaries of the house.

During the search, they found someone standing inside through the window and one of the officer’s gunshot the person. The person inside, was, unfortunately, 28-years old Jefferson herself who was in her bedroom, playing video games with an 8-year old nephew of hers.

The officer who murdered the woman is not named by the police and is not interrogated yet, but the police have issued a videotape of the incident. Its a modified version of a 2-minute video, that revealed that officers were walking around the woman’s house when one of them suddenly shouted “Put your hand up! Show me your hands”, and within 2 or 3 seconds he shot fire and did not name himself as a police official. Afterward, the officers moved inside, but the woman had died on the spot.

The neighbor has told the newspaper that he was just anxious about the woman’s safety because he knew that the woman and her nephew were home and doors were open late at that time, that’s why he called the helpline. He says that he has gotten mad over the situation as he feels responsible for the mishap. If he had not called the helpline, the lady might be alive by now.
