Dallas police seek manslaughter warrant against officer who killed neighbor

University in Search Ark. shows Botham Jean leading worship at a university presidential reception in Dallas

On September 6, 2018 at about 9:59 p.m., an off duty Dallas Police officer called police dispatch and said she was involved in a shooting at the apartments located at 1210 S. Lamar. It wasn't immediately clear if Guyger had an attorney. The officer's name had already been circulating in social media posts, the report said.

Merritt had previously claimed that Guyger, a four-year veteran, wasn't being eyed for manslaughter charges because of her status as a cop. He said he waited outside and heard his mother's cries through the closed door.

Hall said police aren't handling the case under the department's usual officer-involved shooting protocol.

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

Hall said Friday that the officer's blood was drawn to be tested for drugs and alcohol. She has been charged with manslaughter. The statement also indicated, "They made the decision to postpone pursuing a warrant until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer". It's unclear what, if anything, was said before Jean was shot. When the officer thought he saw the woman in a auto with two men in the 8300 block of Reva Street, the officer asked for backup from Guyger and another officer, according to an affidavit.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said: "Botham Jean was exactly the sort of citizen we want to have in the city of Dallas".

Authorities have said Guyger and Jean, a native of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean, did not know each other.

Botham Jean speaks at Harding University, March 24, 2014.

Amazon joins $1 trillion club, on pace to overtake Apple
In the second quarter, AWS booked $6.1 billion in sales (up 49%), and generated an operating income of $1.64 billion (up 79%). Apple took nearly 38 years as a public company to achieve the trillion dollar milestone, while Amazon got there in 21 years.

He told reporters Saturday that the Texas Rangers, the top criminal investigative agency in the state, has taken over the probe into the shooting death late Thursday of Botham Jean.

"Botham loved mankind", Jean's mother, Allison Jean said to those gathered.

Government leaders of the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia say the shooting death in Dallas of an island native came as a "shock" and that embassy officials in the USA will provide assistance to the victim's family. His family lawyer had said on Saturday that Guyger should be arrested swiftly. "I don't know if she was exhausted, but that's pretty scary".

"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. Botham loved mankind. Botham never saw color, race. "He wanted all of us to unite, to be together".

Church Elder Sammie Berry and his daughter, Jessica, knew Jean to be a man of God and was always ready to be of service.

"I need to look into her eyes and ask her why did she do that to my son", Allison Jean told NBC News. "Allow us to get to the bottom of those answers that we could give to you, and then let's have a discussion". "But at some point, she fired her weapon, striking the victim".

Among those who offered prayers was Todd Gentry, college minister for the College Church of Christ in Searcy, where Botham Jean served as a ministry intern while at Harding.
