The father of Atatiana Jefferson, a Texas woman who was fatally shot by a white Fort Worth police officer last month, has died, according to multiple reports.

"He ultimately just succumbed to, I don't know, I can only say a broken heart", Carter told CNN. Carter said Jefferson was battling Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, which makes breathing hard.

Marquis Jefferson's 28-year-old daughter's death quickly sparked national outrage and strengthened community distrust towards the role of law enforcement in the city.

Claiming that several of Atatiana's relatives had cut him out of the funeral planning process, the elder Jefferson filed a temporary restraining order to gain control of the funeral plans and her remains.

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. The funeral took place on October 24.

Dean resigned from the Fort Worth Police Department and was charged with murder.

The Dallas Morning News reported that Jefferson was 58 and that the cause of death was a heart attack. Body-worn camera footage shows Dean approach Jefferson's window and open fire nearly before he finishes shouting for Jefferson to put her hands up. "That's my one and only daughter", adding, "I'll never forget that".

Jefferson's father was referencing the hugs at Amber Guyger's murder trial, who was found convicted of murdering Botham Jean in his own home on September 6, 2018.

Atatiana Jefferson, 28, was shot and killed by a police officer while she was in her own home with her nephew on October 12, 2019.
