Aaron Dean, the white cop who shot dead 28-year-old black woman Atatiana Jefferson through the window of her home while performing a wellness check on Saturday night.
The largest police union in Texas, CLEAT (Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas), said in a statement released after Dean was identified as the officer who shot Jefferson that it would be providing an attorney to Dean.
A document on the Fort Worth city website shows that Darch has been an officer since 2017.The only social media presence currently found for Aaron Dean is a Facebook page under the name AE Dean that is mostly scrubbed except for a few public posts. The page lists April 13, 2018 as the day that this Dean started a new job with the Fort Worth Police Department, and on April 21, 2018 he posted a photo of his graduating class.
Atatiana Jefferson, 28, was playing video games with her eight-year-old nephew just before 2.30am Saturday when Dean shot her through the window of a home on East Allen Avenue.
A GoFundMe campaign has raised over $139,000 for Atatiana's family as of Monday morning.
