Transcript for Cop seen shooting, killing woman in her own home
Thank you. Now to the outrage and the search for answers after a white police officer shot and killed a black woman in her own home through her bedroom window. ABC's Marcus Moore has the story. Reporter: Overnight protesters flooding the streets. No justice, no peace. We're tired of this. Reporter: Anger rising following the shooting death of 28-year-old atatiana Jefferson killed in her home by a forth worth police officer. I'm calling about my neighbor. Reporter: Sparked by a phone call made by a concerned in the newly released audio he tells police he noticed her door was open at 2:24 A.M. In the morning and asked for a welfare check. I haven't seen anybody moving around and it's not normal for them to have both doors open at this time of the night. Do you know if anyone is I'm not sure. Both of the cars are there. Reporter: The dispatcher sent officers to her home. This body cam video shows the moment the encounter turns deadly. The responding officer is not heard identifying himself as he approaches Jefferson's bedroom window and begins shouting commands. Put your hands up. Show me your hands. Reporter: Within moments he fires one deadly shot through the window. It's 0.6 seconds between the command and shot. No time for them to perceive a threat from the weapon, no time for her to respond. Reckless deadly behavior. Reporter: According to her family, she was playing video games with her nephew when that shot was fired. The neighbor is speaking out. When I made that 911 emergency call, I didn't say it was a burglary, I didn't say it was fighting across the street. I didn't say anything that would make them think they needed to have a gun. All they needed to do was knock on the door and ring the doorbell. Reporter: Igniting a public outcry. What the officer observed and why he did not announce police will be addressed as the investigation continues. Reporter: And the officer who fired that shot is expected to speak with investigators about the shooting later today and family members say Jefferson was a premed graduate from Xavier university and had returned home to take care of her sick mother. Robin. Beyond tragic. Marcus, thank you.
