Dallas police officer arrested in shooting death of Botham Shem Jean

Dallas police seek manslaughter warrant against officer who killed neighbor Dallas Cop Charged After Killing Man In Apartment She Thought Was Hers
Andrew Cummings | 10 September, 2018, 06:31

Dallas police said Friday they are seeking a warrant for manslaughter against one of their own after an off-duty officer entered the wrong apartment in her building and killed a man who was inside.

The Texas Rangers are investigating and an attorney for Jean's family has called on the authorities to arrest Guyger. As officers on the scene tried to figure out who the woman was, the man in the back seat got out, defying orders to stay in the auto. Guyger then shot Perez.

Amber Guyger, 30, who has been with the department for nearly five years, was not indicted in the 2017 shooting of the suspect who had taken her Taser from her during a struggle. Neither Guyger nor the other officers were injured in the 2017 shooting. The shooting comes at a time of a national debate over the shooting of unarmed black men by police officers.

Her bond was set at $300,000.

"Please continue to pray for the family of Botham Jean tonight and in the weeks and months ahead", Rawlings said. Jean said Friday in footage broadcast by Dallas' NBC affiliate, KXAS.

Police have not released an official picture of Officer Guyger, but Chief Hall did confirm she is a white patrol officer. She was taken into custody by the Texas Rangers.

"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.

He told reporters Saturday that the Texas Rangers, the top criminal investigative agency in the state, has taken over the probe into the shooting death late Thursday of Botham Jean.

Jean, Rawlings said, "was exactly the sort of citizen we want to have in the city of Dallas".

Along with prayers and tributes, the vigil featured boisterous congregational singing of hymns including "Just a Little Talk with Jesus", "When We All Get to Heaven" and - at the request of Allison Jean - "O I Want to See Him".

Upon entering the apartment she "encountered" Jean inside the residence.

In a statement Saturday, the police department said the Texas Rangers took over the investigation to "eliminate the appearance of any potential bias".

Investigators are "working as vigorously and meticulously as we can to ensure the integrity of this case and ensure the integrity of the department is upheld", Hall said. "The very Bible says to render to Caesar that which is Caesar so if Caesar says to pay a penalty for a life, then she has to pay".

'Right now, there are more questions than we have answers, ' Hall told a news conference. It said officials at its embassy in the USA would provide assistance to the family. Her son, who grew up in the Caribbean island nation of St Lucia before attending college in Arkansas, is black.

The 30-year-old Guyger killed 26-year-old Botham Jean on Thursday.

Following the shooting Mr Jean was rushed to hospital where he died.

On Friday, reporters pressed the police chief about the officer's mental state when she went inside the wrong apartment - was she tired, or under the influence? - but Hall didn't want to speculate. It is unclear if the two had any interaction before the shooting, police said.
