Cop goes home to wrong apartment, kills man inside

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

She told officers she believed the victim's apartment was her own when she entered it.

The man was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Authorities have said the officer is white, but haven't released her name or other details about her. But she said Saturday that the Texas Rangers, who have taken over the investigation, asked her department to hold off because they had learned new information and wanted to investigate further before a warrant was issued.

Dallas Police are charging a fellow officer with manslaughter for shooting death of a 26-year-old she mistakenly thought was in her apartment.

"It's not clear what the interaction was between her and the victim", the statement said in part.

Jean was from Saint Lucia, a small Caribbean island, according to his Facebook page.

Frazier said Jean was a bright student with a bright future ahead of him who had interned with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas before taking a job there after graduation.

"If you are here tonight, I want to challenge you: I don't want this moment to ease your conscience", Waters said, his voice cracking. "We understand the concerns of this community and that is why we are working as vigorously and as meticulously as we can to ensure the integrity of this case".

"Right now, there are more questions than answers,"Chief Ulysha Renee Hall said Friday during a press conference". The complex is near the department's headquarters on Lamar Avenue.

Allison Jean, 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". He told me he had never heard the song before, but that day, he called back to St. Lucia and asked his grandmother to teach him that old hymn on the phone.

She reportedly called 911 to report the shooting and responding officers had expected to encounter a more routine officer-involved shooting.

A blood sample was drawn from the officer to test for alcohol and drugs. After graduating from the SALCC in 2010, he moved on to Harding University in Arkansas where he graduated in 2016.

Dallas police say an officer returning home from work shot and killed a neighbour after she said she mistook his apartment for her own. A struggle began and Guyger fired her Taser at Perez, who then wrested it away from her.

Citing a relative of Jean, the newspaper reported that the officer lived on another floor of the same complex.

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

Fellow Harding alum Romas Roberson said Jean's leadership was missed at the private liberal-arts school in Searcy, Arkansas.

Harding University officials were mourning the beloved former worship leader at chapel services Friday morning, a university employee said.
