Dallas officer shoots, kills man after entering wrong apartment

Dallas police officer kills 26-year-old man after entering wrong apartment believing it was her own

So far, they have drawn the officer's blood to test for alcohol or drugs and they are in the process of getting a warrant for manslaughter.

Authorities investigating the Thursday night shooting, which claimed the life of 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean, aren't the only ones with questions.

The officer called 911 and authorities responded and took Jean to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The officer who fired the shots was not injured. While she's on administrative leave, the Dallas Police Department is conducting a joint investigation with the District Attorney's Office. Jean went home and called his grandmother in Saint Lucia; she taught it to him over the phone, from thousands of miles away.

The shooting also rocked residents of other nearby apartment buildings.

The officer reported the shooting around 10 p.m. Thursday night and police officers administered first aid on the scene. Hall said she did not know the whereabouts of the officer, whose name was not released.

Jean was a graduate of Harding University in Arkansas and was said to be an active member at his church, according to reports.

"Initial indications were that we were dealing with an officer-involved shooting".

Jean was once asked to lead a college chapel service with an hymn that was unfamiliar to him, Harding University President Bruce McLarty recalled in a statement Friday.

"We heard cops yelling, but otherwise had no idea what was going on", Simpson's study partner, Yazmine Hernandez, 20, said.
