Dad of Atatiana Jefferson, Texas police shooting victim, dies after heart attack

His death came less than a month after his daughter was fatally shot by a Fort Worth, Texas, police officer in her home.

Marquis Jefferson, 58, suffered a fatal heart attack his spokesperson told NBC 5 DFW.

Dean shone his flashlight into the window, said 'Put your hands up, show me your hands, ' and fired a split second later, without identifying himself as police, bodycam video showed.

The officer was charged with murder in the October 12 shooting death of 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson - a case that has drawn national attention.

The argument tends to center around black men, but Atatiana Jefferson was a black woman.

"He ultimately just succumbed to, I don't know, I can only say a broken heart", family spokesman Bruce Carter told CNN.

It doesn't seem as though Constance Wu's desire to see the show end had any effect on the network's decision. Playing Eddie's brothers are Forrest Wheeler and Ian Chen while Lucille Soong stars as his grandmother.

After her death, Marquis Jefferson became involved in a dispute with other family members over his daughter's funeral details. "He just couldn't get back from what happened with his daughter". Family members said she had chose to move into the property in order to look after her ailing mother. A deal was eventually reached and the funeral was rescheduled.

The family's attorney, Lee Merritt, said at the time that the doors of the house were open so a cool breeze would enter the house while Atatiana, who was known as "Tay", played video games with her eight-year-old nephew, Zion. Carter said Jefferson was battling Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, which makes breathing hard.

The victim heard noises, pulled her handgun out of her purse and pointed it at a bedroom window, Zion told police.

Dean's body cam footage showed the moment he approached Jefferson's home, and opened fire through a window.

Dean resigned from the Fort Worth Police Department and was charged with murder. "That's my one and only daughter", adding, "I'll never forget that".

His daughter, 28-year-old Atatiana, was killed by now-former police officer Dean Aaron during a welfare check on October 12.
