Nephew, 8, was in room when Fort Worth police shot woman in her home while the two played video games
An 8-year-old boy was in the room when his aunt was fatally shot while playing video games in her home by a Fort Worth officer who never announced that he was a police officer, authorities and the family confirmed.
Investigators were scheduled Monday to interview the officer who shot Atatiana “Tay” Jefferson, 28, early Saturday morning, police Lt. Brandon O’Neil said. Police also released audio of a neighbor’s calm call to a non-emergency phone number that sent police to the home.
Jefferson, who was black, worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative. The officer, who is white, has served on the force for 18 months, police said. The shooting took place less than two weeks after former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was convicted of murdering Botham Jean, a black man shot in 2018 as he ate ice cream in his home.
S. Lee Merritt, a lawyer for Jefferson’s family, said the victim’s nephew told him the duo had been up late playing “Halo” – with the doors open to enjoy the cool fall breeze – when they heard noise outside her bedroom window.
“They looked at each other and listened more intently when they heard it again,” Merritt said in a social media post. “Someone was outside.”

5G will become reality within 3 years: Cisco CEO
5G networks could be active in 2 to 3 years: Cisco CEO
Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins discusses the economic slowdown, global market uncertainty, Chinese censorship, and building a 5G network.
Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins told FOX Business that it will be another two to three years before mobile carriers roll out 5G technology.

Carriers are focused on the technology needed to build consumer networks, he told Maria Bartiromo. When they begin to expand on enterprise 5G services, a “high-performance backbone” will be needed to accommodate all the traffic that it’s expected to generate.
“The carriers today are building the consumer 5G networks and they don't require a massive backbone upgrade when you just increase bandwidth to lots of mobile phones,” he said.

Once 5G is implemented, carriers will have to spend big.
“If you think about the speeds that are going to be supported at the edge and the number of those connections, it's only logical that you're going to have to update your infrastructure to accommodate all the bandwidth that's going to be given out around the world. And so we would expect to ultimately be a beneficiary of that when it happens,” Robbins said.
