The nephew of the 28-year-old black woman fatally shot in her home by a white Fort Worth police officer over the weekend said his aunt drew a gun after hearing noises outside her house, according to an arrest warrant affidavit for the officer released Tuesday. The details in the affidavit add weight to earlier accounts of the shooting from family members and city officials who said Atatiana Jefferson was trying to protect herself and the 8-year-old boy from what she thought was an intruder when she was killed early Saturday. The officer who shot Jefferson, Aaron Dean, resigned and was charged with murder on Monday. [...] But investigators did interview an officer who responded to the call with him. The officer, identified as C.A. Darch, told investigators Dean was standing between her and the house at the time of the shooting and that she could “only see Jefferson’s face” through the window when Dean opened fire, according to the affidavit. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wa...w-gun-nephew-told-authorities/?outputType=amp IMO these are going to be the key factors in a jury trial. There were two witnesses there. The first who was with AJ said they heard noises. He never indicated he or she heard or saw the police. The second who was with AD said she saw AJ’s face but never saw her gun and she herself has yet to indicate she perceived a threat.
