Texas Cop Who Fatally Shot Man After Entering Wrong Apartment Identified

10 September 2018

Dallas Police have confirmed the identity of the officer that killed Botham Jean in his own apartment on Thursday night.

The Texas Rangers are investigating and an attorney for Jean's family has called on the authorities to arrest Guyger.

At a press conference Sunday, before the arrest was announced, the attorneys representing Jean's demanded action be taken against the officer, arguing that a police officer should not be given preferential treatment. His Dallas West Church of Christ family say you could always find the man up on stage singing.

Police say Guyger shot and killed Jean after returning in uniform to the South Side Flats, where they both had apartments, following her shift. 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. The Dallas Police Department released her name Saturday night.

Dallas' police chief, U Renee Hall, revealed yesterday that her department was seeking to charge the officer with manslaughter.

Jean's family did not speak at the press conference. Martin, a black, unarmed 17-year-old, was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in 2012 in Sanford, Florida.

"Is this a white on black crime?" Clark, 22, was fatally shot earlier this year by officers in the backyard of his grandparents' home in Sacramento, California.

In a horrifying twist, the officer had actually entered the wrong apartment, killing 26-year-old African American resident Botham Shem Jean, reports a local Fox affiliate. Officer Amber Guyger has said she mistakenly entered Jean's apartment thinking it was her own.

"Right now, there are more questions than we have answers".

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings says the shooting death of a 26-year-old black man by a white off-duty police officer "is a very serious situation for the city of Dallas". This investigation is ongoing and we will release additional details as they become available and it is appropriate to do so.

Allison Jean, who has held government posts in St. Lucia, where she lives and where her son grew up, said her son's death "just feels like a nightmare". Would she have reacted differently?' she told KXAS.

"I need to look into her eyes and ask her why did she do that to my son", Allison Jean told NBC News.

Gareth Southgate longing for Paul Gascoigne's England successor
England responded in style and scored a goal of stunning quality in the 11th minute. "It was a really tough game", said Southgate. Luke Shaw plays for Manchester United .

Guyger previously shot a Pleasant Grove man in 2017.

The Dallas Police Department has since ceased handling the incident under its "normal officer-involved shooting protocol" and has invited the Texas Rangers to conduct an independent investigation. It's unclear what the interaction was between them, but at some point she "fired her weapon, striking the victim", according to Hall.

The shooting sparked major outrage on social media and widespread calls for Guyger's arrest.

Jean graduated in 2016 with a degree in accounting and management information systems from Harding University, where Bertram Jean said his son got the Arkansas school to send students to St. Lucia over the summer to do charity work. They described Jean as a devout Christian and a talented singer. "God gave me an angel".

Merritt said Jean and the officer did not know each other.
