Atatiana Jefferson's father gets restraining order

NBA's Harrison Barnes to Pay for Atatiana Jefferson Funeral

Sacramento Kings forward Harrison Barnes and his wife and Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Malik Jackson have offered to pay for the funeral of a Fort Worth, Texas, woman who was killed in her home by a police officer last week. You think of wellness check not being something that's going to be fatal.

While nothing will bring Jefferson back to her family and loved ones, Barnes believed showing support would give some semblance of comfort.

Jefferson's funeral is scheduled to take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday at The Potter's House in Dallas, pastored by Bishop T.D. Jakes.

The neighbor, James Smith, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, that he called police for a wellness check after his niece noticed Jefferson's door was open, and never thought the call would lead to Jefferson's death. "You have to be ready for anything". Aaron Dean, the man who killed Jefferson, resigned from the Fort Worth Police Department and was subsequently charged with murder. "You are taking more of your environment in consideration to be ready for a surprise if there's one".

Atatiana Jefferson was babysitting her 8-year-old nephew early Saturday morning when police arrived to her house after a neighbor called a non-emergency line, anxious about Jefferson because her door was open.

Experts told CNN that some police officers treat open structure cases as potential burglaries. The officer sees the woman through the window, shouts, "Put your hands up, show me your hands", and fires one shot.

Her family and the police chief say she had every right to do so. "Show me your hands!" before he fired through the window, killing Jefferson.

Jefferson's father on Friday gained a restraining order to halt the funeral, claiming he had been left out of the arrangements, the Dallas Morning News reported. "I'm deeply sorry for what occurred", Fort Worth Police Chief Ed Kraus said during a news conference earlier this week. There was no immediate response to the call but when the police finally arrived in the early morning hours, the officer said he saw someone standing near a window. "The lights were on, there was evidence that people were living there, there were toys", Halstead said. Fort Worth Police are investigating the shooting.

"Why they developed to an extremely dark yard house with out a minimum of ringing the doorbell or checking the entrance?"
