Marquis Jefferson, the father to Atatiana Jefferson, has died from a heart attack, according to the Associated Press.
Atatiana was fatally shot by a white police officer last month in her home in Fort Worth, Texas. The officer was responding to a welfare check at her home. The officer, Aaron Dean, has been charged with murder and resigned from the police force.
After the death, Marquis Jefferson filed a temporary restraining order to have involvement in her funeral arrangements, which was granted, delaying the funeral.
