Dallas officer to be charged with manslaughter after shooting a neighbor

Off-duty Texas police officer shoots man after mistaking apartment as her own

The Dallas police officer who shot and killed a man when she entered the wrong apartment will soon be charged according to Dallas police Chief Renee Hall.

Authorities took blood samples from the officer to test for alcohol and drugs, and the Texas Rangers will conduct an independent investigation in the "different and very unique situation", Hall said during her press conference.

On Thursday evening, September 6, a Dallas police officer was going home after her shift, when she walked into the wrong apartment and shot the man inside. She told responding officers that she believed the victim's apartment was her own when she entered it.

Fellow officers were called to the scene where they administered first aid to the 26-year-old victim. The chief said she would release the officer's name if and when charges were filed.

A local man has died after being shot inside his own apartment by an off-duty Dallas police officer.

"Somebody has to be insane not to realize that they walked into the wrong apartment". The police department said she will be placed on administrative leave while an investigation is completed.

Friends of Jean's have taken to social media leaving their thoughts, prayers and well wishes for friends and family of the young man.

However, Hall said the officer was a female patrol officer.

The police department is no longer handling it with their normal officer involved shooting procedures.

"We heard cops yelling, but otherwise had no idea what was going on", Hernandez said.

The Dallas County District Attorney's Office will be involved in the investigation.

"This is a bad tragedy", PricewaterhouseCoopers said in a statement through the Twitter account for the national firm.

He was also the son of the Allison Jean, the Caribbean nation's former permanent secretary in the Ministry of Education, Innovation and Gender Relations, according to the St. Lucia Times. "Botham Jean was a member of the PwC family in our Dallas office and we are simply heartbroken to hear of his death", the company said in a statement. The university said he frequently led worship and chapel services on campus.
