Dallas police seek manslaughter warrant against officer who killed neighbor

Dallas Officer Mistaken Apartment

Guyger, a five-year officer, shot a suspect during an arrest in 2017 but was cleared of wrongdoing. She is pictured in the photo with the victim.

Jean's family is demanding charges against Guyger in Jean's death.

At a vigil Saturday, former professor Todd Genery said Jean loved life, people and his Lord. Guyger was trying to assist, when a struggle began with Perez.

Chief Hall said she has been in contact with Jean's family and offered her condolences.

Guyger was not charged in the case. He graduated in 2015 from Harding University, where he studied accounting and was known for his powerful singing voice, the Christian Chronicle reported.

Dallas police on Saturday named Amber Guyger, a four-year force veteran, as the off-duty white officer who shot and killed 26-year-old Botham Jean Thursday night.

Authorities have confirmed that the officer is white, but have not released her name or any other details about her.

Guyger has told investigators that she was off-duty on Thursday night when she mistakenly went to the wrong apartment and shot Botham Jean.

"This family is upset", said attorney Lee Merritt. She acknowledged that many questions remain about the shooting and asked the public to give investigators enough time to get to the answers.

After Jean graduated in 2016, he remained in the US with an internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, his mother said.

Nike is ‘getting killed’ for Colin Kaepernickad, says president Trump
Thirteen percent of those surveyed said they were less likely to purchase from Nike after viewing Kaepernick's first ad. Davis said he believes Americans are growing exhausted of divisiveness and that Nike is "stirring controversy".

"Initial indications were that we were dealing with an officer-involved shooting, however, as we continued the investigation it became clear that we were dealing with what appears to be much of a very unique situation", Hall said.

"We have nothing to substantiate those claims", he said.

'You want to think it's fiction. and you have to grapple with the reality, ' he said.

He says he spoke Saturday with Gov. Greg Abbott, who promised that the Rangers will ensure "justice will be served".

Preliminary information suggests that the officer arrived home in full uniform after working a full shift. Officials have not explained why she thought Jean's apartment was hers or what her mental or physical state was at the time.

She said at a news conference that the Texas Rangers were launching an independent investigation. The Dallas Police Department has now identified the person first as a Caucasian, second as a woman, and thirdly, and perhaps worst of all, it has now been revealed the female officer knew the slain Black man. Hall couldn't provide the location of the officer or whether she was in custody.

In St Lucia, government leaders said the death of Botham Jean came as a "shock" and that embassy officials in the U.S. would provide assistance to the victim's family. Hall said the officer's blood was drawn at the scene so that it could be tested for alcohol and drugs. Rescue crews transported Jean to a hospital, where he later died.

"The Texas Rangers had an opportunity to interview the officer", Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said Saturday. But as of late Saturday, no formal charge had been filed, and no arrest warrant had been issued. A police spokeswoman declined to comment. Hall said she did not know if race played a factor, or whether Jean and the officer knew each other. "If it was a white man would it have been different?" They took several mission groups, which Botham Jean helped organize, to work in St. Lucia.

The footage shows a female cop crying into her phone on a walkway of the Dallas apartment block seconds before 26-year-old Botham Jean is pulled past on a trolley as medics desperately try to revive him.
