Police responding to a request for a wellness check early Saturday shot and killed 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson, an African American woman, through her bedroom window. A neighbor called a Fort Worth, Texas, police non-emergency number at about 2 a.m. to report Jefferson’s front door was left open for several hours. Jefferson was playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew, family members said, when she thought she heard a prowler and went to the window to check. The boy was in the room when she was shot.
