Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Second Front -

FORT WORTH, Texas — A black woman was fatally shot by a white Fort Worth, Texas, of­fi­cer in­side her home early Satur­day after po­lice were called to the res­i­dence for a wel­fare check, au­thor­i­ties said.

The shoot­ing oc­curred after a neigh­bor called the po­lice non-emer­gency line to re­port that the front door to the home was open, ac­cord­ing to the Fort Worth Star-Tele­gram.

In body cam­era video re­leased by po­lice, two of­fi­cers search the home from the out­side with flash­lights be­fore one shouts, “Put your hands up, show me your hands.” One shot is then fired through a win­dow.
