  原標題:因鄰居“多管閒事”,美國女子被警察槍殺在自己家中

  槍擊事件發生數小時後,警方公佈了一份經過大量編輯的、由該警員的隨身記錄儀記錄下的監控畫面。

  The nearly 2-minute video shows officers walking outside the home with flashlights for a few minutes before one of them yells, “Put your hands up! Show me your hands!” and shoots his weapon through a window。

  這段近兩分鐘的視頻顯示,警察拿着手電筒在屋外走了幾分鐘,然後其中一名警察喊道:“舉起手來!讓我看看你的手!”並通過窗戶向屋內開槍。

  In a statement, police said the officers entered the home and gave the woman medical treatment, but she died at the scene。

  警方在一份聲明中說,警察進入了這名女子的家中,對她進行了救治,但她當場死亡。

  Police have not named the officer, who joined the department in April of last year。 The officer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation。

  警方沒有透露這名去年4月加入警局的警員的姓名。該名警員已被停職,等待調查結果。

  出於對鄰居的關心而報警,卻導致鄰居被無辜槍殺,傑斐遜的鄰居史密斯感到非常不安。

  Smith, the neighbor who called police, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he knew Jefferson was home with her nephew when he saw the doors of the house open, and was concerned about them。

  向警方報警的鄰居史密斯告訴《沃斯堡星電報》,當他看到房子的門開着的時候,他知道傑斐遜和她的侄子在家裏,他很擔心他們。

  He told the newspaper he was trying to be a good neighbor and called authorities so they could check on Jefferson。

  他告訴《沃斯堡星電報》,他本想當個好鄰居,並打電話給有關部門,以便他們查看傑斐遜的情況。

  “I‘m shaken。 I’m mad。 I‘m upset。 And I feel it’s partly my fault,” he told the newspaper。 “If I had never dialed the police department, she‘d still be alive。”

  “我很不安。我心煩意亂。我快瘋了。我覺得這在一定程度上是我的錯,”他告訴《沃斯堡星電報》。“如果我沒有給警察打電話,她就不會死。”

  此外,他表示當時沒有發生家暴或爭吵,警察不應採取如此激進的執法方式。

  The concerned neighbor, James Smith, told local television station WFAA that he never intended for an aggressive law enforcement response。

  深感不安的鄰居詹姆斯·史密斯對當地電視臺WFAA表示,他從沒想到(警方)會採取激進的執法行動。

  “No domestic violence, no arguing,” he said。 “Nothing that they should have been concerned with, as far as them coming with guns drawn to my neighbor‘s house,” Smith said。 “There wasn’t any reason for a gunshot that I know of,” he said。 “She wasn‘t a threat。”

  史密斯說道:“沒有家庭暴力,沒有爭吵。就他們帶着槍來到我鄰居的房子而言,沒有什麼是他們應該擔心的。據我所知,當時沒有任何理由會發生槍擊。她不構成威脅。”

  據警方公佈的、經過剪輯的、由警方隨身記錄儀拍攝到的當時的畫面顯示,開槍的那名警察當時並沒有表明他的警察身份,同時屋內也發現了一把槍。對於警察開槍時,傑斐遜是否也拿着槍,警方沒有對媒體作出回答。

  Authorities say that when they entered Jefferson‘s home, a gun was recovered from the bedroom — the area where police shot and where Jefferson was pronounced dead。 Officials did not say whether Jefferson was holding a weapon at the time the officer fired at her。

  警方說,當他們進入傑斐遜的家時,從臥室裏找到了一把槍,這是警察開槍的地方,也是宣佈傑斐遜死亡的地方。警方沒有說明傑斐遜在警員向她開槍時是否持有武器。

  不過,當地的牧師、社區活動人士表示,傑斐遜擁有武器不應該成爲警方使用致命武力的理由。

  Kyev Tatum, a pastor and community activist who was on the scene shortly after the shooting, said Jefferson‘s having a weapon should not have justified the use of deadly force。

  基耶夫·塔圖姆是一名牧師和社區活動人士,他在槍擊事件發生後不久就趕到了現場。他表示傑斐遜擁有武器不應該成爲警方使用致命武力的理由。

  “If you hear some noise in your backyard early in the morning when you‘re with your 8-year-old nephew, well of course anyone in their right mind is going to try to protect themselves and others, especially a child,” Tatum said。 “But the officer reacted so quickly and never identified himself as a police officer。”

  “清晨時分和8歲的侄子在一起時,如果你聽到後院有噪音,當然,任何正常的人都會試圖自我保護和保護他人,尤其是孩子,”塔圖姆說道。“但這名警察反應太快,且從未表明自己是一名警察。”

  當CNN要求得到未經剪輯的現場錄像、事件報告、以及警方當時的調遣電話錄音時,警方發言人表示,目前不會公佈更多信息。

  據警方介紹,這是德克薩斯州沃斯堡警察局今年以來發生的第9起涉警槍擊案。其中有7人死亡。

  傑斐遜於2014年畢業於澤維爾大學,獲得生物學學士學位。她從事醫藥銷售的工作,並搬到了生病的母親家裏照顧她。她有三個兄弟姐妹。

  對於她的不幸,傑斐遜的姐妹表示,這又是一起那些本應保護他們的人實際上並沒有保護他們的案件。

  “It‘s another one of those situations where the people that are supposed to protect us are actually not here to protect us,” Jefferson’s sister, Amber Carr, told CNN affiliate KTVT。 “You know, you want to see justice, but justice don‘t bring my sister back。”

  “這又是一樁,本該保護我們的人實際上並不是來保護我們的事件。”傑斐遜的姐妹安布爾·卡爾對CNN下屬的KTVT說道。“你知道,你想看到正義,但正義並不會把我妹妹的命還回來。”

  梅里特將這起事件與該地區另一起備受關注的致命警察槍擊事件相類比。兩起案件的共同點在於,涉事警察都是白人,而受害者都是非洲裔美國人。

  安珀·蓋格(Amber Guyger)是達拉斯的一名白人警察,她走錯房間,進入一名黑人男子的公寓,以爲那是她自己的公寓,然後開槍打死了那名男子。她最近被判處10年監禁。
