    Dallas police said the officer called for help and told responding officers that "she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own."

    Dallas police said Friday they are seeking a warrant for manslaughter against one of their own after an off-duty officer entered the wrong apartment in her building and killed a man who was inside.

    Police Chief Reneé Hall said a blood sample was drawn at her request to test the officer's drug and alcohol levels and "we are in the process of obtaining a warrant based on the circumstances."



    She said at a news conference that the Texas Rangers were launching an independent investigation.

    Investigators are "working as vigorously and meticulously as we can to ensure the integrity of this case and ensure the integrity of the department is upheld," Hall said. She said the officer, who was off-duty at the time of the shooting, would be identified pending any charges.

    Further details surrounding the death of Botham Shem Jean, a 26-year-old native of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, were not immediately provided. Hall did not say why the officer opened fire and declined to discuss what she may have been doing before she returned home after working a full shift Thursday

    Harding University, a private university in Searcy, Arkansas, said Jean was a native of the Caribbean country St. Lucia and often led worship services at the school's campus. He graduated from the school in 2016. Since then, he's been working in risk assurance for accounting and consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, the school said.

    FIRED PHILADELPHIA OFFICER ACCUSED OF HOMICIDE IN FATAL SHOOTING

    Jean's mother, Allie, questioned how the deadly mix up occurred.

    "Somebody has to be crazy not to realize that they walked into the wrong apartment," Allie Jean told NBC News. "He's a bachelor. Things are different inside."

    A few questions:
    1) how did her key work to his apt?
    2) was she drunk?
    3) was this intentional masked as an accident?
    4) were they involved- dating/coloring etc?
    5) how come WP never get “accidentally” shot in these situations?

    I wonder what kind of narrative they're going to create for this delicate white flower. :rolleyes: :rolleyes::rolleyes: Is it even possible to stand your ground after unlawful entry into a person's home.

    I think I'm going to go with #3 - intentional masked as accident.

    I have never even almost gone into the wrong apartment when I lived in apartments. So many questions.
    Just saw on the news he was a youth pastor. This is crazy.

    She thought she entered her own apartment? How? You need a key to get in so that excuse makes no sense. But let's say she did happen to go into the wrong apartment :rolleyes: you got your gun at the ready to just shoot somebody standing there? They're gonna charge her but they're still covering something up.

    Exactly. And you don't look around for 1/2 second to see that nothing in that apartment is yours?

    And why are they withholding her name? Anyone know what race she is?

    So......she forgot her apartment number? Or......she didn't look at the number on the door?

    So she had just finished working a 12 hour shift. I used to live in a 12-story high-rise with over 350 apartments and I never went to the wrong apartment after sometimes working for 12 hours.

    Sad part is it is in Texas. Ugh.


    This hurts. I just watched Channel 5 news with his mom on there. :cry:
    Why can’t they leave US alone? Like why? Why do they always need to shoot to kill?

    SN: I peeped the comments on DailyFail and they are actually out for blood on that cop. Color me shocked.

    The door was probably unlocked or she had a key cause they were screwing.

    My downstairs neighbor once accused me and my ex of trying to get into her unit. Her daughter was at home by herself the night before, and she heard someone try to put a key in the door, then jiggle the doorknob. The neighbor said we'd probably had too much to drink then accidentally took the elevator to the wrong floor. She said mistakes happen and just asked us to admit it and she'd accept our apology.

    Meanwhile, our boring selves had been at home the night before watching movies and eating frozen pizza. Her fake made up version of our Friday night was way more interesting than our reality. :lachen:

    I’m in Dallas and the truth is leaking out little by little, her story makes NO sense so I’m not shocked at any of this.

    Good questions. My first thought ,when I heard this story, was #4...that there was something going on between the two of them,

    I don't believe her story.

    I should have read your comment before making mine. My first thought was that they were involved either currently or in the past. her story doesn't add up.

    It’s starting to make more sense now.

    RIP to the young man. Whatever happened between the two should not have cost him his life. I hope the charges are upgraded now.

    Apparently neighbors heard someone say "Open up" in the hallway before the shooting happened.

    I just hope she is held accountable. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    I live near Dallas @UniquelyDivine keep the tea flowing. I kind of had a hunch that the cop knew the neighbor. I hope the DA ups her charge from manslaughter to murder since she knew him and it might have been premeditated. We need to know her name tho. :look:

    Video was shared on Twitter by “PartnersInJustice.” In the video, a female white officer is heard crying and seen walking with a phone in her hand. The officer appears to be very distraught in the video. Towards the end of the video, it appears first responders are wheeling Jean out of the apartment.
