Dallas officer shoots, kills man after entering wrong apartment

Botham Shem Jean 26 was shot dead in his home by a Dallas police officer Thursday night

Chief U. Renee Hall said at a news conference Friday that "there are more questions than we have answers" in the Thursday night killing of 26-year-old Botham Jean, but that with the information investigators have now, they're seeking a manslaughter charge against the officer.

According to the Dallas Police Department, the off-duty officer called dispatchers to report she was involved in a shooting at an apartment around 10 p.m. Thursday.

Police have not released the name or race of the officer, who arrived home in uniform and was not injured. She walked into an apartment, mistaking it for her own, and found a man inside.

Emergency crews administered first aid to Mr Jean at the scene but he later died in hospital. The officer who shot him was not physically hurt, according to police.

Allie Jean, Jean's mother, said she wants transparency from the police officer who shot her son.

It's not clear whether the officer is in custody, though Hall said she didn't know the officer's whereabouts. Authorities have not said how the officer got into his home or whether the door was open or unlocked.

He had graduated from a private Christian college in Arkansas in 2016 and had since been working for a major accounting firm in Dallas. "My brother is my best friend", Jean's sister tells NBC.

Russian Federation has been a key supporter of Assad and complained about militants in Idlib targeting its own facilities. Civilians in the area reported hearing explosions and seeing smoke rise from nearby buildings.

Hall says the officer's blood was drawn to be tested for drugs and alcohol.

At the very early stages of this investigation - initial indications were that they were what we consider circumstances of an officer involved shooting.

"I have spoken with the Jean family", said Chief Hall.

This photo from 2014 shows Botham Jean speaking at Harding University where he often led campus worship services.

An arrest warrant was in the process of being issued Friday afternoon, but Hall said the Rangers interviewed the officer and wanted to investigate further.

"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 told me he had never heard the song before, but that day, he called back to St. Lucia and asked his grandmother to teach him that old hymn on the phone", McLarty said. "I hope it stirs something deep inside of you to roll up your sleeves and work so we won't have to gather under these cloudy skies again".
