Family seeks answers after police kill Texas woman at home

FORT WORTH, Texas -- A white police officer who killed a black woman inside her Texas home while responding to a neighbour's call about an open front door "didn't have time to perceive a threat" before he opened fire, an attorney for the woman's family said.

"You didn't hear the officer shout, 'Gun, gun, gun,"' attorney Lee Merritt said after viewing video taken from a Fort Worth officer's bodycam during Saturday's shooting of Atatiana Jefferson, 28. "He didn't have time to perceive a threat. That's murder."
