Off-duty Dallas Police Officer fatally shoots unarmed Black man in his apartment

Dallas Officer Mistaken Apartment

Jean, 26, was a graduate of Harding University who worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas.

Kinsey said she could see from her patio that the lights were turned on in Jean's apartment. Jean, who lived there, was home.

"I didn't know she was white until now", Jean said in footage broadcast by Dallas NBC affiliate KXAS. "This is the worst pain".

Amber Rene Guyger has not been subjected to arrest.

But Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said Saturday that he supported Chief Hall and her decision to bring in state investigators.

A police spokeswoman, Debra Webb, said she did not have further information on the case, including when the officer would be booked into jail. Hall also announced that investigators were in the process of getting a warrant for manslaughter.

During a criminal justice panel on Saturday, Hall vowed that the police department will be transparent. Details on exactly what happened remain under investigation by the Texas Rangers and the Dallas County district attorney's office.

Per CBS News, the Texas Rangers have taken over the investigation and have placed a manslaughter charge against Guyger on hold.

"This family is upset", said attorney Lee Merritt.

The delay has frustrated Jean's grieving family members and raised questions about deferential treatment for police officers. "Certainly no one that has been attached to the family or any of the law enforcement officers we've spoken to can confirm that, in fact they say just the opposite". Guyger, a five-year officer, shot a suspect during an arrest in 2017 but was cleared of wrongdoing.

Jean's family is calling for a Guyger to be arrested and charged so the case can begin its way through the court system. Guyger has been a part of the department for four years and is assigned to the Southeast Patrol Division.

In the May 2017 incident, Guyger was trying to identify a woman in a auto when another passenger got out and took her taser, police said in the release.

Merritt said Jean and the officer did not know each other. When he returned that night, he sang the song with grace and poise, as though he'd always known it.

"This is a bad tragedy".

"What's wrong with our society", he told the crowd.

"I couldn't believe it when we got that call".

Victim Botham Jean was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

"This world has lost a light in the dark", Ray said of his colleague's death.

His mother chuckled as she told the crowd about the determined spirit he'd showed his entire life.

Despite the officer and the victim living in the same building, the attorney said he had no indication they knew each other. "He was a leader in everything he did".

But she questioned how the situation could have escalated to her son's shooting. He was determined to be an accountant.

In a statement, Harding University President Bruce McLarty shared a favorite memory of his time with Jean.

"Seeing the transparency that's already taken place and seeing a warrant has already been issued - these kinds of things help build credibility with us", the pastor said. "Don't they train police?"

"This is my Botham", she said. But either way, she believes Guyger must ace the penalty for her actions.

"This is the worst call any mother can get,"Jean said". "At some point, she fired her weapon, striking the victim".

Island authorities offered their condolences Friday to Allison Jean, who's held a number of government posts and whose 26-year-old son was killed late Thursday.

"Super scary because the police are supposed to protect you and then they come home and you're just hanging out in your own house and then they come home thinking they're home or whatever", said Richard Healy Nelson, who lives in the complex. "He wanted everybody to give God their best". He will buried in St. Lucia.
