Officer Opens Wrong Door; a Tragedy Results

Botham Shem Jean 26 was shot dead in his home by a Dallas police officer Thursday night

After the officer shot Jean, she called emergency services and told responding officers that she had thought she had entered her own apartment.

The 26-year-old man who was killed by an off-duty Dallas police officer in an apartment she apparently confused for her own was a beloved member of a local church as well as an employee at a prestigious accounting and consulting firm, according to those who knew him.

The officer reported the shooting around 10 p.m. Thursday night and police officers administered first aid on the scene.

"Somebody has to be insane not to realize that they walked into the wrong apartment". The officer, who was not publicly identified by authorities, then opened fire on the man who resided there, police said. Jean was later pronounced dead at Baylor University Medical Center.

The police department is no longer handling it with their normal officer involved shooting procedures. The officer has not been identified, and she is being placed on administrative leave as the investigation is conducted.

Jean was the son of Allison Jean, former Permanent Secretary of the Department of Education, Innovation and Gender Relations for St. Lucia, according to St. Lucia Ambassador Anton Edmunds.

Authorities haven't said how the officer got into Jean's home, or whether his door was open or unlocked.

She said he "was in no wrong place at any wrong time", describing the flat as her son's "sanctuary".

The storm also led to the cancellation of over 800 domestic and global flights and closure of tourist places in Japan. All flights are canceled, with the airport indicating that it has no plans to re-open its runways on Wednesday.

A relative, believed to be Jean's uncle, made an emotional Facebook post where he asked, "How can this nasty world take you away from me?"

Hall said she hopes the investigation can bring clarity to the family.

After graduating from the SALCC in 2010, he moved on to Harding University in Arkansas where he graduated in 2016.

"The entire Harding family grieves today for the loss of Botham Jean, who has meant so very much to us".

An arrest warrant was in the process of being issued Friday afternoon, but Hall said the Rangers interviewed the officer and wanted to investigate further.

But given what investigators now know about the case, they made a decision to pursue a manslaughter case, police said.

The officer's blood was drawn to be tested for drugs and alcohol.

"You want to think it's fiction ... and you have to grapple with the reality", he said. "I hope it stirs something deep inside of you to roll up your sleeves and work so we won't have to gather under these cloudy skies again".
