Dallas Cop Charged After Killing Man In Apartment She Thought Was Hers

"We are here to express our outrage, and we are here to demand accountability", said Imam Omar Suleiman, an activist, at the event organised by the Dallas-based Mothers Against Police Brutality group.

Brandt, 17, gave his father the phone and left the room.

"Somebody has to be insane not to realize that they walked into the wrong apartment", Allie Jean said.

The mother of a black man who was shot and killed inside his home by a white Dallas police officer who said she mistook the apartment for her own has suggested that her son might still be alive if he were white. "He was really inspiring". Martin, a black, unarmed 17-year-old, was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in 2012 in Sanford, Florida. "I think that's what the family would say". "He was real. He was down to earth". The department had requested a warrant on Friday.

Allie Jean said she would speak with her son daily, usually before 10 p.m., but thought he might be out after she didn't hear from him. Brandt and his father Bertram said they will go Saturday.

At the Dallas West Church of Christ, the congregation knew Botham Jean as "brother Bo". He was a native of the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, who graduated from Harding University and now worked for the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. "We will miss our boy". The university said he frequently led worship and chapel services on campus. "He didn't say anything about not knowing the song, but he had never heard it before in his life. So he shared it with us at Lectureship that night, and it was a truly special moment".

"Regardless of the circumstances, this is a tragedy on both sides", she said. He worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational audit and consulting firm with offices in Downtown Dallas.

Allison, who has held government posts in St. Lucia, where she lives and where her son grew up, said her son's death 'just feels like a nightmare'.

Guyger is accused of fatally shooting Jean in his apartment on Thursday (Sept. 6).

Officer Amber Guyger, who has been on the force for four years, faces possible manslaughter charges stemming from a fatal shooting late Thursday, police said.

She walked into what "she believed to be her apartment", Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said.

Amber Guyger, 30, was booked on Sunday night in the Kaufman County Jail.

Speaking at a town hall meeting with State Senator Royce West, Chief Reneé Hall said the officer has been interviewed by the Rangers and the investigation is ongoing.

Hall said at a news conference Friday that the officer would be charged with manslaughter, but it's unclear if that will still be the case.

Attorney Lee Merritt, who is representing Jean's family, also said that Jean did not know Guyger, according to family members. At some point, the officer fired her weapon striking the victim. Guyger believed Jean was an intruder and shot him, police said. He was listed on LinkedIn as a risk assurance experienced associate. "We understand the concerns of the community", Hall told reporters Friday afternoon.
