FORT WORTH, Texas (WITI) -- Fort Worth Interim Police Chief Ed Kraus apologized Tuesday for the killing of Atatiana Jefferson in her home by a Fort Worth officer.

“I’m deeply sorry for what occurred,” Kraus said at a news conference. “Human life is a precious thing. It should not have been taken from Ms. Jefferson."

The officer, Aaron Dean, resigned after Saturday morning’s shooting.

Kraus provided new information about Dean’s arrest Monday: He was arrested by police officers at his attorney’s office.
