A mourner pays respects before the start of the funeral service for Atatiana Jefferson on Oct. 24 2019 at Concord Church in Dallas Texas

The father of Atatiana Jefferson, the woman who was killed last month by a rookie Fort Worth police officer, died Saturday of a heart attack.

Marquis Jefferson suffered a cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital Friday night, November 8, Carter said.

Police responded after a neighbor of Jefferson's called a non-emergency line and requested a well-being check after noticing her door was ajar and the lights were on.

Marquis Jefferson reportedly succumbed to cardiac arrest in his home on November 9, 2019.

"Her death rocked the nation but no one felt it more than the people that were directly tied to her in life", Merritt said. Carter tells KDFW that Jefferson "just couldn't get back from what happened with his daughter".

On Oct. 18, a Dallas County judge granted Marquis Jefferson a temporary restraining order, giving him full authority to make arrangements for his daughter's funeral and burial.

Her service took place October 24 after a judge issued a temporary restraining order in her father's favor. "She say 'Tay was shot, '" he told CBS DFW.

Atatiana Jefferson's death came just weeks after Amber Guyger, a white Dallas police officer, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for shooting Botham Jean, a black man, in his own home. She had been playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew for several hours prior to cops' arrival.

According to NBC5, she had grabbed a handgun from her purse after hearing a noise in her backyard and went towards a window.

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

Dean has since been fired from the Fort Worth police force and charged with murder.

She was killed on October 12 while playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew.
