Dallas officer mistakes apartment for own; kills man

Off-duty Texas police officer shoots man after mistaking apartment as her own

The police report that the female officer had just finished her shift and entered what she thought was her own apartment. Sources tell CBS 11 News reporter J.D. Miles that the officer had actually gone to the wrong floor and put her key in the lock, but it wouldn't turn.

Allison also revealed that she was visiting NY when she received a call informing her that Botham had been killed in his own apartment. Hall said the officer is white, but she didn't say whether investigators believe race was a factor in the shooting. Jean was taken to a hospital, where he died.

"If this was not an officer who pulled the trigger, they would be in a jail cell tonight", Dallas Muslim community leader Omar Suleiman said during the vigil.

The Texas Rangers took over the investigation from the Dallas Police Department to "eliminate the appearance of any potential bias", the police said Saturday.

"We still have a lot to do in this investigation".

The Dallas police chief says it remains unclear whether there were any words exchanged or any other interaction between a police officer and her neighbour before she fatally shot him in his home.

Botham Jean, the son of Mrs. Allison Jean and Mr. Bertram Jean, was also the nephew of former national footballer Earl Jean and former parliamentarian Ignatius Jean.

The officer called 911 and officers "responded in about four minutes", Hall said.

The shooting happened around 10 p.m. Thursday.

"We heard cops yelling, but otherwise had no idea what was going on", Hernandez said.

PEOPLE's attempts to reach Jean's relatives were unsuccessful on Friday.

Jean, a St. Lucia native, was a Harding University graduate who was listed on LinkedIn as a risk assurance experienced associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The officer, whose name has not been released, will be charged with manslaughter, police said Friday, as reported by the Associated Press.

"He lived what he spoke", Monan said, adding that Jean's death has stirred emotions of overwhelming sadness and anger.

Tracy Moore, a preacher who knew Jean from a Church of Christ Caribbean lecture series, told The Christian Chronicle that Jean was a powerful singer who always had "a spirit of joy that flowed from him". "He was every good thing that you can imagine", said Pickle. While still in uniform, she told authorities she mistakenly walked into Jean's apartment in an upscale complex near downtown Dallas. "I jumped up, went to my door, looked out the peephole".

Yazmine Hernandez, 20, was studying with Simpson when they heard the commotion. We have not interviewed her. ...

"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.
