After a police officer fatally shoots someone, it can take days or even weeks before the public or his supervisors hear the officer’s version of what happened.
Victim’s Nephew Says Atatiana Jefferson Pointed Gun at Window After Hearing Noises; Chief Ed Kraus Says There’s ‘No Excuse’ for Shooting
Interim Fort Worth Chief of Police Ed Kraus says there’s “absolutely no excuse” for an officer’s fatal shooting of a woman inside her home over the weekend, even if she was holding a gun inside her home.
The family of a woman shot and killed by a Fort Worth police officer in her own home have retained an attorney.
The officer who fired the shot that killed a 28-year-old woman in Fort Worth early Saturday morning did not identify himself as a police officer prior to shooting, a Fort Worth Police Department spokesman says.
