Dallas Officer Arrested on Manslaughter Warrant

Botham Shem Jean

Facebook Botham Shem Jean, 26, was fatally shot inside of his Dallas apartment on Thursday by an off-duty police officer, authorities said.

Online records initially showed Guyger was in custody, but she later was not listed on the jail inmate roster.

The incident took place at the South Side Flats in Dallas on Thursday night.

Amber Guyger shot the man after returning from her shift on Thursday night.

Dallas civil rights attorney Lee Merritt said that based on his conversations with officials, including Hall, there was enough evidence to arrest Guyger on suspicion of manslaughter. Officials have not explained why she thought Jean's apartment was hers or what her mental or physical state was at the time.

It's not clear what, if any, interaction the two people had before Guyger discharged her gun and then called 911.

Kerry Ray worked with Botham Jean at PricewaterhouseCooper.

There's some people that say they want to talk about it and say they want to discuss it and debate it, but they don't. Woods, who has been with Nike since turning pro in 1996, praised Nike for doing something "beautiful" and "special".

Guyger was not injured in the incident and was placed on administrative leave while an investigation was launched.

Hall said the Texas Rangers have asked Dallas police to delay acquiring a warrant to arrest the officer in order to investigate further, WFAA-TV reported.

Therefore, we have ceased handling it under our normal officer involved shooting protocol, a blood sample was drawn to test for drugs and alcohol, we are in the process of obtaining a warrant, and we have also invited the Texas Rangers to conduct an independent investigation.

"We have a lot of questions that are unanswered", Hall said. "We understand the concerns of this community and that is why we are working as vigorously and as meticulously as we can to ensure the integrity of this case". "In doing so, we hope to bring understanding to the family".

Jean was a beloved member of a local church and an employee at a prestigious accounting and consulting firm, according to those that knew him.

Friends and family gathered at a vigil at Jean's church, the Dallas West Church of Christ on Saturday, CNN affiliate CBS 11 reported. "And for that reason this is a bad thing that has happened. We've lost a potential leader for this city for decades to come". They took several mission groups, which Botham Jean helped organize, to work in St. Lucia.

After Jean graduated in 2016, he remained in the US with an internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, his mother said.

"I had the honor to meet with Mrs. Jean this morning", Rawlings told reporters Saturday.

"You want to think it's fiction ... and you have to grapple with the reality", he said.

"If there is probable cause that a crime has been committed in this jurisdiction, it is incumbent on law enforcement, and particularly the district attorney's office, to issue a warrant for the arrest of the officer involved", Merritt said. Guyger deployed her Taser before Perez was able to take it from her. Such questions are being raised by Jean's family and attorney.

Jean was an accountant at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, an worldwide company that does assurance, tax and advisory work for firms around the world.

Bruce McLarty, president of the university, said he once asked Jean to lead the singing of an unfamiliar old hymn.

"This is a bad tragedy".

Mr Jean's mother, Allison Jean, wondered whether race could have been a factor.
