Transcript for Officer who fatally shot woman at home arrested
We turn to that police shooting that left a Texas woman dead inside her own home. Overnight the officer who fired that fatal shot was arrested and charged with murder. ABC's Marcus Moore has the story. Reporter: The officer at the center of a fatal weekend shooting identified as Aaron Dean booked on a charge of murder overnight.

Dean is accused of shooting and killing the 28-year-old early Saturday morning in her home. The terrifying moment captured on the officer's body cam. Put your hands up.

Police showed up at the house after a neighbor called the department's nonemergency line to report that the family's front door was open.

Officer Dean is out of jail this morning on a $200,000 bond. Michael. All right. Marcus, such a sad case right
