RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN A black woman was shot dead by a police officer in Texas through the window of her own bedroom last week.

Atatiana Jefferson was inside her bedroom playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew when she heard a noise outside the window and went to see what was going on.

Her lawyer S.

Lee Meritt told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that she was promptly shot dead through the window by a Texan police officer.

The newspaper reports that Jefferson's neighbor, James Smith, made a call to the non-emergency police hotline to check on her as the door of her house was left open.

Surveillance footage from the officer's camera shows two police officers surveying the perimeters of her house using flashlights.

In the footage, one of the officer spots a figure through the bedroom window and is heard saying, "Put your hands up!

Show me your hands!" and proceeds to immediately fire a gunshot through the window.

In the video, the man does not explicitly identify himself as a police officer.

After the shooting, the officers entered the woman's residence and began providing emergency medical care.

She was pronounced dead on scene.

A press release by the police mentioned that there was a firearm in Jefferson's residence, though it isn't clear if she was holding the weapon during the incident.
