Dallas police officer accused in neighbor’s death fired

Investigators to look at security footage to track Dallas officer night she killed black neighbor

An internal affairs investigation determined that she had "engaged in adverse conduct" when she fatally shot her neighbor, 26-year-old Botham Jean, on September 6.

Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall said last week that she couldn't terminate Guyger before internal affairs concluded its investigation. Guyger told officers at the scene that she'd gotten off on the wrong floor of her apartment building by mistake, and believed Jean to be an intruder. She was charged with manslaughter three days after she killed Jean.

It's not clear what "adverse conduct" the department means.

'There is one overriding reason that I have not taken any administrative or employment action against Officer Amber Guyger. Jean's mother, Allison, learned of Guyger's termination during a Sunday evening conference call with Hall, family attorney S. Lee Merritt said Monday. The family's attorneys released a statement saying they see the termination as an initial victory.

"The Jean family said that this was an initial victory but are still focused on the proper indictment by the grand jury of murder, a successful prosecution and an appropriate sentence", he said in an interview. Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson has said the case will be presented to a grand jury, which could determine stronger charges for Guyger.

The newspaper reported that Jean is scheduled to be laid to rest Monday in Saint Lucia.

There are conflicting narratives over what led up to the shooting.

Entering the darkened apartment, she noticed a figure whom she said she mistook for a burglar and fired twice, striking Jean once in the chest, the affidavit said. "It says it was dark inside, she saw the silhouette of a man, and she gave him orders that he didn't follow".

When she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, the affidavit said. She then drew her gun and fired, wounding Perez in the abdomen.

As she navigates in slow motion, trying to gain clarity about what really happened to her son, Allison Jean is committed to pushing forward to gain justice for his death. After the shooting, she proceeded to call 911. Authorities have not released results.

"Officer Guyger was terminated for her actions", the document continues.
