Police in the U.S. state of Texas say an officer who shot and killed a black woman in her home in Fort Worth has resigned.

The city’s police chief, Edwin Kraus, told a news conference that officer Aaron Dean would have been fired Monday if he did not resign.

Kraus said “the officer still faces criminal charges from the major case investigation.” He said he expects a “substantial update” within a day on whether criminal charges will be filed against Dean.
