According to the Dallas News, the nephew of Atatiana Jefferson told police that it was after his aunt heard something outside that she took a gun from her purse and pointed it at a window.
The 8 year old boy's comments came in an interview with a forensic investigator. The boy said he and his aunt were playing video games around 2:30 in the morning Saturday when Atatiana heard something outside. The boy said his aunt was shot after she pointed the gun at the window.
Interim Police Chief Ed Kraus said at a news conference Tuesday that it “makes sense that she would have a gun if she felt that she was being threatened or there was someone in the backyard.”
Fort Worth Police Officer Aaron Dean was arrested at his attorney’s office  Monday evening on a murder charge. He was freed from the Tarrant County Jail after posting $200,000 bond.
