Female Dallas cop who killed man in his home charged with manslaughter

Female Dallas cop who killed man in his home charged with manslaughter

Police have said that the officer, who has not been named, mistook Jean's apartment at the South Side Lofts for her own and shot and killed him upon somehow gaining entry.

But on Saturday, Hall said that investigators needed more time to decipher what they described as an unusual case of police-involved shooting that led to the death of 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean. "At some point she fired her weapon striking the victim", CNN wrote, quoting the chief.

"This is a bad tragedy", the company said in a statement". Her son, who grew up in the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia before attending college in Arkansas, is black.

When Botham Jean was born in 1991, his mother said, "God gave me an angel".

Guyger has told investigators that she was off-duty on Thursday night when she mistakenly went to the wrong apartment and shot Botham Jean. Authorities didn't say how it happened, but she ended up opening fire at the person. The officer reported to the responding officers that she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own. He graduated in 2015 from Harding University, where he studied accounting and was known for his powerful singing voice, the Christian Chronicle reported.

Before Sunday's action against Guyger, the family's lawyer, Lee Merritt, said the lack of an arrest had added to the family's grief. He also "frequently led worship for chapel and campus events", the school said.

Harding University President Bruce McLarty shared fond memories of him after learning of his death. "Never had parties. We would chat about life, smiling and laughing".

"I couldn't believe it when we got that call. So he shared it with us at Lectureship that night, and it was a truly special moment".

"The Texas Rangers had an opportunity to interview the officer".

"We have reassured them that we are working diligently and that we have invited an outside agency to investigate this", she said.

However, as we continued this investigation it became clear that we were dealing with what appears to be a much different and very unique situation.

Police identified the officer as Amber Guyger, a four-year veteran of the department assigned to the Southeast Patrol Division. Hall said Friday the officer's blood will be tested to determine whether she had been using drugs or alcohol.

The officer, who the police are yet to identify, has been placed on leave pending official charges and will face criminal charges for the fatal shooting, officials said on Friday.

Renee Hall said on Friday would be charged with manslaughter, has not yet been arrested because Hall is no longer leading the investigation. "In doing so, we hope to bring understanding to the family". "We're calling on the Rangers and on the district attorney's office at this time to make that happen, and swiftly".

Jean worked as a risk assurance experienced associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers, according to his LinkedIn page.

"This is a awful tragedy".

Allison Jean was visiting New York City when she learned of her son's death.

Rawlings said that this was a good thing because the investigation is now an independent one. Merritt questioned whether Guyger was receiving preferential treatment.
