Police officials said Monday they do not understand why Officer Aaron Dean, 34, shot and killed 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson through a window in her home on Saturday. The shooting happened when officers went to Jefferson’s house for a nonemergency welfare check. Her 8-year-old nephew was in the room at the time Dean shot her. Dean resigned from the police force Monday and authorities charged him with murder. He left jail in Tarrant County, Texas, after posting bond on Monday night.
