Dallas Police Fire Officer Who Killed Botham Jean In His Own Home

Dallas Church Intent on Seeking Justice in Botham Jean’s Death

A Dallas police officer who is accused of killing her neighbor after mistaking his apartment for her own was sacked Monday.

Amber Guyger was terminated by DPD Chief U.

A Dallas police officer was arrested Sunday on a manslaughter warrant in the shooting of a black man at his home, Texas authorities said.

Guyger can appeal her termination, according to Hall's statement. The criminal investigation in the case is ongoing.

According to an affidavit filed against Perez, police were looking for a suspect when Guyger and another officer were called to assist a third officer.

Guyger was arrested three days after the incident after the Texas Rangers made a decision to postpone pursuing a warrant "until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer". Last week, the chief released a statement arguing that opening an administrative investigation into the officer could "compromise the criminal investigation." .

The arrest warrant affidavit - written by Texas Rangers, who took over the investigation - said Guyger found Jean's front door "slightly ajar", and then opened it by pushing a key into the door. Inside, the lights were off, and she saw a figure in the darkness that cast a large silhouette across the room, according to the officer's account.

Guyger, who was hired by the department in November 2013, had been assigned to the city's Southeast Patrol Division.

She had been on administrative leave, as activists called for her immediate firing.

Demonstrators march around AT&T Stadium ahead of a September 16 Dallas Cowboys game to protest the recent killings of two black men by law enforcement.

Guyger fatally shot Botham Jean earlier this month in his residence.

The Dallas County medical examiner's office said Jean died of a gunshot wound to the chest and abdomen.
